We have an tool XML for an in-house command-line bioinformatics tool which performs analysis on FASTQ files on our galaxy server. When galaxy runs the tool (via the tool XML), it converts the files to .dat (such as dataset_487.dat and so on) and then runs the command.

I was wondering if there is a way whereby I could get the original filename for the dataset_xxx.dat files (such as a reference or attribute that links the original input file to dataset_xxx.dat). The results of the analysis includes the filenames of FASTQ files for users, however due to galaxy, we're seeing just dataset_xxx.dat instead of the original files.

Would the history_dataset_association be any helpful here?

Regards, Ali

There are many tools in the Tool Shed that pull in the given history dataset name back into the history when naming output for downstream tools. Picard's Mark Duplicates is one example. Perhaps review and model after it?

Thanks, Jen, Galaxy team
