Hello, I have a tool which reads options from a text file (with a 'from_file' directive in the XML). A cron job regularly updates the file, and I need to reload the tool. Until recently I've used the following hack to force a tool reload (inside a shell script): wget -q -O /dev/null http://localhost:8080 --post-data="passwd=MYPASSWD&tool_id=my_tool_id&action=tool_reload" But I've recently switched to external authentication, and the above method doesn't work any more. I could try to simulate the entire user authentication process through the apache proxy, but it seems such a waste - the cron job runs on the same server as the Galaxy process. is there a better way to tell the galaxy process to reload a tool ? Thanks, Gordon.
