2. Try the latest version of tools.
3. Include tool and Java versions.
4. Tell us whether you are following GATK Best Practices.
5. Include relevant details, e.g. platform, DNA- or RNA-Seq, WES (+capture kit) or WGS (PCR-free or PCR+), paired- or single-end, read length, expected average coverage, somatic data, etc.
6. For tool errors, include the error stacktrace as well as the exact command.
7. For format issues, include the result of running ValidateSamFile for BAMs or ValidateVariants for VCFs.
8. For weird results, include an illustrative example, e.g. attach IGV screenshots according to Article#5484.
9. For a seeming variant that is uncalled, include results of following Article#1235.

Did we ask for a bug report?

Then follow instructions in Article#1894.

Formatting tip!

Wrap blocks of code, error messages and BAM/VCF snippets--especially content with hashes (#)--with lines with three backticks ( ``` ) each to make a code block as demonstrated here.

Picard 2.10.4 has MAJOR CHANGES that impact throughput of pipelines. Default compression is now 1 instead of 5, and Picard now handles compressed data with the Intel Deflator/Inflator instead of JDK.

Plotting queue job report fails. Rscript can't find function 'arrow'.

I found if I add library(grid) to gatk-protected / public / R / scripts / org / broadinstitute / sting / queue / util / queueJobReport.R the error goes away.

    I have bumped into the same problem, exactly the same error. It seems the R script is not available on the GATK github anymore. Another workaround is to add 'grid' to default library list so it can be preloaded into R.

    I hope the requirements of running the Rscript (the one that produces Qscript job report, if there are other R scripts) can be described somewhere on this forum/website, although I understand this is not really a major concern.

    Hi there,

    I will put this on the documentation to-do list. To be honest this is not a priority, so it may be a while, but we will get it done eventually.

    I've just started to work with QUeue and I've also stumbled over the problem, and indeed adding library(grid) is solving the problem. Do you accept pull requests on github to fix this and similar problems? The development there seems to be halted at he moment since there was no commit in the last six months.

    @holgerbrandl yes we do take pull requests, thank you. Queue is pretty stable so there's not much development happening there, but improvements are always welcome.
