Collection datasets can be individually dragged and dropped into tool forms as inputs. That might be enough for your purposes?
Also please see the tools in the group: Collection Operations. In particular, these:
- Relabel List Identifiers from contents of a file
- Filter List from contents of a file
- Apply Rule to Collection
If you think MultiQC has a bug with respect to reading in the collection element identifiers and reporting those in the report, please create an issue at https://github.com/galaxyproject/tools-iuc/issues. If you want to vet it first (best), contact the IUC tool authors at their Gitter chat here: https://gitter.im/galaxy-iuc/iuc. This functionality is still somewhat new and not all tool wrappers use this specific collection information yet as far as I know. Running the analysis using an older version of Galaxy could be a factor, too. Upgrade to release
18.09 if running this at your own local to see if that fixes the problem. Make certain that the most current version of MultiQC and the upstream tool that generated the report given to MultiQC are installed and/or used.
When discussing the problem with the authors, including an example such as a shared history link showing the behavior (if possible) might be requested. Be prepared to note which tool versions you are using, where the analysis was done (if a public Galaxy, by URL), and the version of Galaxy (if running at your own local).
Thanks! Jen, Galaxy team
