Available Canned Workflows
Once logged in, the home page will show you a list of available pre-built workflows.
The i Info icon links out to a page that documents the workflow. Each workflow has a name and a brief description.
Click the Run link to run a workflow. This link will take you to a page where you can provide the workflow with a data set to run on and any other parameters that it needs.
Running a Workflow
When you click the Run link on the list of workflows you will be taken to a dialog where you can enter the information needed by that workflow. This may be the URI at which a Darwin Core archive can be found, or may be an option to upload a data file. Some workflows may take other configuration parameters as well.
When you have provided the information the workflow needs, click the Run Workflow button. This will start the workflow. After some period of time, your browser will redirect to the home page where you will now see the workflow you just launched in the list of running workflows. You can also click on Home to go to the home page to see the running workflows, or you can navigate elsewhere, your workflow will be running in the background on the server.
Depending on the nature of the workflow and the size of your dataset, the workflow may take some time to complete.
Below the list of available workflows on the home page is a list of your workflow runs.
Workflows may be running, may have completed successfully, or may have failed with an error.
For a workflow which has completed successfully, click the Download link to obtain a zip archive containing the workflow results.
