Note

Anonymous users are allowed to get their current history

Parameters:deleted (boolean) – if True, show only deleted histories, if False, non-deleted
Return type:list
Returns:list of dictionaries containing summary history information
The following are optional parameters:
view: string, one of (‘summary’,’detailed’), defaults to ‘summary’
controls which set of properties to return
keys: comma separated strings, unused by default
keys/names of individual properties to return

If neither keys or views are sent, the default view (set of keys) is returned. If both a view and keys are sent, the key list and the view’s keys are combined. If keys are send and no view, only those properties in keys are returned.

For which properties are available see:
galaxy/managers/histories/HistorySerializer
The list returned can be filtered by using two optional parameters:
q: string, generally a property name to filter by followed
by an (often optional) hyphen and operator string.

qv: string, the value to filter by

..example:

To filter the list to only those created after 2015-01-29, the query string would look like:

‘?q=create_time-gt&qv=2015-01-29’
Multiple filters can be sent in using multiple q/qv pairs:
‘?q=create_time-gt&qv=2015-01-29&q=tag-has&qv=experiment-1’
The list returned can be paginated using two optional parameters:
limit: integer, defaults to no value and no limit (return all)
how many items to return
offset: integer, defaults to 0 and starts at the beginning
skip the first ( offset - 1 ) items and begin returning at the Nth item
..example:
limit and offset can be combined. Skip the first two and return five:
‘?limit=5&offset=3’
The list returned can be ordered using the optional parameter:
order: string containing one of the valid ordering attributes followed
(optionally) by ‘-asc’ or ‘-dsc’ for ascending and descending order respectively. Orders can be stacked as a comma- separated list of values.
..example:
To sort by name descending then create time descending:
‘?order=name-dsc,create_time’
The ordering attributes and their default orders are:
create_time defaults to ‘create_time-dsc’ update_time defaults to ‘update_time-dsc’ name defaults to ‘name-asc’

‘order’ defaults to ‘create_time-dsc’

class galaxy.webapps.galaxy.api.history_contents.HistoryContentsController(app)[source]

Bases: galaxy.web.base.controller.BaseAPIController, galaxy.web.base.controller.UsesLibraryMixin, galaxy.web.base.controller.UsesLibraryMixinItems, galaxy.web.base.controller.UsesTagsMixin

__init__(app)[source]
index(self, trans, history_id, ids=None, **kwd)[source]
  • GET /api/histories/{history_id}/contents
    return a list of HDA data for the history with the given id

Note

Anonymous users are allowed to get their current history contents

If Ids is not given, index returns a list of summary objects for every HDA associated with the given history_id.

If ids is given, index returns a more complete json object for each HDA in the ids list.

Parameters:
  • history_id (str) – encoded id string of the HDA’s History
  • ids (str) – (optional) a comma separated list of encoded HDA ids
  • types (str) – (optional) kinds of contents to index (currently just dataset, but dataset_collection will be added shortly).
Return type:

list

Returns:

dictionaries containing summary or detailed HDA information

show(trans, *args, **kwargs)[source]
  • GET /api/histories/{history_id}/contents/{id}
  • GET /api/histories/{history_id}/contents/{type}/{id}
    return detailed information about an HDA or HDCA within a history

Note

Anonymous users are allowed to get their current history contents

Parameters:
  • id (str) – the encoded id of the HDA or HDCA to return
  • id – ‘dataset’ or ‘dataset_collection’
  • history_id (str) – encoded id string of the HDA’s or HDCA’s History
  • view (str) – if fetching a dataset collection - the view style of the dataset collection to produce. ‘collection’ returns no element information, ‘element’ returns detailed element information for all datasets, ‘element-reference’ returns a minimal set of information about datasets (for instance id, type, and state but not metadata, peek, info, or name). The default is ‘element’.
  • fuzzy_count (int) – this value can be used to broadly restrict the magnitude of the number of elements returned via the API for large collections. The number of actual elements returned may be “a bit” more than this number or “a lot” less - varying on the depth of nesting, balance of nesting at each level, and size of target collection. The consumer of this API should not expect a stable number or pre-calculable number of elements to be produced given this parameter - the only promise is that this API will not respond with an order of magnitude more elements estimated with this value. The UI uses this parameter to fetch a “balanced” concept of the “start” of large collections at every depth of the collection.
Return type:

dict

Returns:

dictionary containing detailed HDA or HDCA information

Parameters:
  • id – encoded HistoryDatasetCollectionAssociation (HDCA) id
  • history_id – encoded id string of the HDCA’s History
create(self, trans, history_id, payload, **kwd)[source]
  • POST /api/histories/{history_id}/contents/{type}s
  • POST /api/histories/{history_id}/contents
    create a new HDA or HDCA
Parameters:
  • history_id (str) – encoded id string of the new HDA’s History
  • type (str) – Type of history content - ‘dataset’ (default) or ‘dataset_collection’. This can be passed in via payload or parsed from the route.
  • payload (dict) –

    dictionary structure containing:: copy from library (for type ‘dataset’): ‘source’ = ‘library’ ‘content’ = [the encoded id from the library dataset]

    copy from library folder ‘source’ = ‘library_folder’ ‘content’ = [the encoded id from the library folder]

    copy from history dataset (for type ‘dataset’): ‘source’ = ‘hda’ ‘content’ = [the encoded id from the HDA]

    copy from history dataset collection (for type ‘dataset_collection’) ‘source’ = ‘hdca’ ‘content’ = [the encoded id from the HDCA] ‘copy_elements’ = Copy child HDAs into the target history as well,

    defaults to False but this is less than ideal and may be changed in future releases.

    create new history dataset collection (for type ‘dataset_collection’) ‘source’ = ‘new_collection’ (default ‘source’ if type is

    ’dataset_collection’ - no need to specify this)

    ’collection_type’ = For example, “list”, “paired”, “list:paired”. ‘name’ = Name of new dataset collection. ‘element_identifiers’ = Recursive list structure defining collection.

    Each element must have ‘src’ which can be ‘hda’, ‘ldda’, ‘hdca’, or ‘new_collection’, as well as a ‘name’ which is the name of element (e.g. “forward” or “reverse” for paired datasets, or arbitrary sample names for instance for lists). For all src’s except ‘new_collection’ - a encoded ‘id’ attribute must be included wiht element as well. ‘new_collection’ sources must defined a ‘collection_type’ and their own list of (potentially) nested ‘element_identifiers’.
..note:
Currently, a user can only copy an HDA from a history that the user owns.
Return type:dict
Returns:dictionary containing detailed information for the new HDA
update(self, trans, history_id, id, payload, **kwd)[source]

dict

Returns:

an error object if an error occurred or a dictionary containing any values that were different from the original and, therefore, updated

delete(self, trans, history_id, id, **kwd)[source]
  • DELETE /api/histories/{history_id}/contents/{id}
  • DELETE /api/histories/{history_id}/contents/{type}s/{id}

    • payload: a dictionary itself containing:
      • purge: if True, purge the HDA
      • recursive: if True, see above.

Note

that payload optionally can be placed in the query string of the request. This allows clients that strip the request body to still purge the dataset.

Return type:dict
Returns:an error object if an error occurred or a dictionary containing: * id: the encoded id of the history, * deleted: if the history was marked as deleted, * purged: if the history was purged

job_files module

API for asynchronous job running mechanisms can use to fetch or put files related to running and queued jobs.

class galaxy.webapps.galaxy.api.job_files.JobFilesAPIController(app)[source]

Bases: galaxy.web.base.controller.BaseAPIController

This job files controller allows remote job running mechanisms to read and modify the current state of files for queued and running jobs. It is certainly not meant to represent part of Galaxy’s stable, user facing API.

Furthermore, even if a user key corresponds to the user running the job, it should not be accepted for authorization - this API allows access to low-level unfiltered files and such authorization would break Galaxy’s security model for tool execution.

index(self, trans, job_id, **kwargs)[source]
  • GET /api/jobs/{job_id}/files
    Get a file required to staging a job (proper datasets, extra inputs, task-split inputs, working directory files).
Parameters:

  • path (str) – Path to file.
  • job_key (str) – A key used to authenticate this request as acting on behalf or a job runner for the specified job.
..note:
This API method is intended only for consumption by job runners, not end users.
Return type:binary
Returns:contents of file
create(self, trans, job_id, payload, **kwargs)[source]
  • POST /api/jobs/{job_id}/files
    Populate an output file (formal dataset, task split part, working directory file (such as those related to metadata)). This should be a multipart post with a ‘file’ parameter containing the contents of the actual file to create.
Parameters:
  • job_id (str) – encoded id string of the job
  • payload (dict) – dictionary structure containing:: ‘job_key’ = Key authenticating ‘path’ = Path to file to create.
..note:
This API method is intended only for consumption by job runners, not end users.
Return type:dict
Returns:an okay message

  • history (str) – If workflow_id is set - optional history where to run the workflow, either the name of a new history or “hist_id=HIST_ID” where HIST_ID is the id of an existing history. If not specified, the workflow will be run a new unnamed history
  • replacement_params (dict) – If workflow_id is set - an optional dictionary used when renaming datasets
  • from_history_id (str) – Id of history to extract a workflow from. Either workflow_id, installed_repository_file or from_history_id must be specified
  • job_ids (str) – If from_history_id is set - optional list of jobs to include when extracting a workflow from history
  • dataset_ids (str) – If from_history_id is set - optional list of HDA `hid`s corresponding to workflow inputs when extracting a workflow from history
  • dataset_collection_ids (str) – If from_history_id is set - optional list of HDCA `hid`s corresponding to workflow inputs when extracting a workflow from history
  • workflow_name (str) – If from_history_id is set - name of the workflow to create when extracting a workflow from history
  • allow_tool_state_corrections (bool) – If set to True, any Tool parameter changes will not prevent running workflow, defaults to False
  • use_cached_job – If set to True galaxy will attempt to find previously executed steps for all workflow steps with the exact same parameter combinations and will copy the outputs of the previously executed step.
workflow_dict(trans, *args, **kwargs)[source]

GET /api/workflows/{encoded_workflow_id}/download Returns a selected workflow as a json dictionary.

delete(trans, *args, **kwargs)[source]

DELETE /api/workflows/{encoded_workflow_id} Deletes a specified workflow Author: rpark

copied from galaxy.web.controllers.workflows.py (delete)

import_new_workflow_deprecated(trans, *args, **kwargs)[source]

POST /api/workflows/upload Importing dynamic workflows from the api. Return newly generated workflow id. Author: rpark

# currently assumes payload[‘workflow’] is a json representation of a workflow to be inserted into the database

Deprecated in favor to POST /api/workflows with encoded ‘workflow’ in payload the same way.

update(trans, *args, **kwargs)[source]
  • PUT /api/workflows/{id}
    updates the workflow stored with id
Parameters:
  • id (str) – the encoded id of the workflow to update
  • payload (dict) –

    a dictionary containing any or all the * workflow the json description of the workflow as would be

    produced by GET workflows/<id>/download or given to POST workflows

    The workflow contents will be updated to target this.

    • name optional string name for the workflow, if not present in payload,
      name defaults to existing name
    • annotation optional string annotation for the workflow, if not present in payload,
      annotation defaults to existing annotation
    • menu_entry optional boolean marking if the workflow should appear in the user’s menu,
      if not present, workflow menu entries are not modified
Return type:

dict

Returns:

serialized version of the workflow
