Referencing Workflow Run-ID

With some of the tasks we are performing we want to include the Workflow Run_id generated by cromwell within the task itself. The id would be included in various reports and used for internal auditing of workflows. Is there any self reference feature in WDL / Cromwell?

    Unfortunately this does not exist yet. It is a known issue and has a github issue that you can track, here: https://github.com/broadinstitute/cromwell/issues/1575

    The big question mark for me before we add this, is that this is the first non-deterministic function that we'll have added. The trick will be making sure we handle call caching correctly if we start adding non-deterministic functions to workflows.
