Hello Alex, Do you mean a default dataset (that a user can modify or never modify) or default form entry data? If default form entry data, then you can use the <param> tag set with "value", as described in this wiki: .3E_tag_set Looking at existing tools that have default form data can provide good examples. For instance, the tool: galaxy-central / tools / filters / remove_beginning.xml See the content in <param value="X"/> line 5 below 1 <tool id="Remove beginning1" name="Remove beginning"> 2 <description>of a file</description> 3 $input $num_lines $out_file1 4 <inputs> 5 <param name="num_lines" size="5" type="integer" value="1" label="Remove first" help="lines"/> 6 <param format="txt" name="input" type="data" label="from"/> 7 </inputs> 8 <outputs> 9 <data format="input" name="out_file1" metadata_source="input"/> 10 </outputs> 12 <tests> 13 <test> 14 <param name="num_lines" value="5"/> 15 <param name="input" value="1.bed"/> 16 17 </test> 18 </tests> 19 <help> Hopefully this helps. If not, write back, or even better, add in some clarification and post a brand new question/thread to the mailing list (the best list for development questions): Jen Galaxy team -- Jennifer Jackson
