Feature Request: Downloading sample/participant metadata for a specific sample_set

Kara_SlowikKara_Slowik kslowikMember, Broadie


Every time I want to download sample or participant metadata from a FireCloud workspace for a specific sample_set, I have to also download the sample_set metadata and filter the entire sample list to get the subset I am looking for. Is there an easier way to do this, or is there a future feature that will allow me to download only a subset of samples/participants at a time?

Thanks for your help!

    I don't believe there is a way to download a subset of samples/participants without outright declaring a sample/participant_set which contains the samples/participants you are interested in looking at. It is something we are looking at adding to FireCloud in the future, though. I will speak with the development team to see if there is anything we have now that would help you, and file a ticket for the feature request if don't have it already.
