Importing/deleting methods within workspace

After choosing a method and hitting import, I consistently get the following error: "FireCloud service is temporarily unavailable. If this problem persists, check for more information."

The status shows all services operating normally.

I also get the following error if trying to delete a method from a workspace: "Error 500: Cannot delete or update a parent row: a foreign key constraint fails (rawls.SUBMISSION, CONSTRAINT FK_SUB_METHOD_CONFIG FOREIGN KEY (METHOD_CONFIG_ID) REFERENCES METHOD_CONFIG (ID))

    Sorry for the delay in response! In the future, we will provide more specific error messages. To help troubleshoot, please share details about the method you were trying to import. You might have encountered this issue in relation to a faulty WDL. To verify that the WDL syntax is valid, you can run wdltool locally on any WDL before importing to FireCloud.

    Regarding the second issue, did you try to delete a method config that had been used to launch an analysis submission? There is a pending fix to display "Method configurations used for a submission cannot be deleted."
