Alphanumerical ID naming system in Cromwell
I have been using Cromwell/WDL for sometime now and I am still trying to figure out some of the nuances associated with it. I am currently trying to formulate a MultiSample MultiStep Variant Calling Workflow and I am actually having trouble with the naming system thats being used for the successful runs. For eg if I am running a workflow that is operating on 25 samples at a time, at the end of the workflow there is random ID that is generated and there is also a directory created with the same name. Inside that directory there is a separate folder for each of the sample.
May I know if I can give these folders a meaning full name by defining the name somewhere in my wdl code or do I have to do it Manually after every run. The reason I ask is, if I wanna go back and check a certain output it becomes tough to check each folder to see if thats the one with the information that I require.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the wdl team for your prompt responses for the queries I have posted in the past.
