Firecloud not correctly reporting status of jobs run on Sample Sets

mleventhalmleventhal Cambridge, MAMember, Broadie ✭✭


I ran the same method configuration on two different sample sets in their respective workspaces, and if I view the status of the job, it will show it is done, as in the attached screenshot. However, the task on the monitor remains in a "running" or "submitted" status, as seen in the second screenshot. If I try to abort, the task is stuck interminably in the "aborting" phase. Worst of all, while outputs are generated by the individual tasks, they are not being written to the data model, rendering the outputs useless for later analyses. Is this all a google issue, or is there a deeper issue in Firecloud? The workspaces in question are:

"ebert-fc/new_SCB0024" and

Thank you.

    The workflows in "ebert-fc/CVID-analysis" ended up working upon a second attempt, while I received a warning message about the planned maintenance in firecloud in the other workspace; it seems to me that these issues could have been due to ongoing maintenance.

    Hi @mleventhal are the statuses now cooperating in these two workspaces? Are you seeing the outputs in the data model? It does seem like you have experienced some buggy behavior.

    Hi Tiffany,

    Statuses are now behaving normally, and the outputs are in the data model. Whatever was my issue seemed to have been only temporary. Thank you!
