Create directory command in WDL

shbriefshbrief New YorkMember

Hi! One of the required inputs of my tool is output directory (--outdir), so I'm trying to add a command to create a new directory within my WDL script (mkdir ${outdir}) but it doesn't seem to work. First, is it even possible? And if so, how to do it? Thanks!

    Hi @shbrief -

    Yes it is possible, it has a lot to do with where in the WDL you are trying to create the output directory and how you are setting the variable.

    Would you mind sharing the WDL so we can take a look?

    What behavior are you currently observing?
