Remote registration of RunParameters.xml in Register sequencing started wizard
|Reported by:||Nicklas Nordborg||Owned by:||Nicklas Nordborg|
The "Register sequencing started" requires that the "RunParameters.xml" file is uploaded via the browser from the local file system. With the HiSeq this was not a problem since it could be done immediately after starting the sequencing. But with the NextSeq there is a delay for several hours before the RunParameters.xml file is created due to clustering.
This typically results in that the sequencing started wizard is not done until the sequencing has actually ended. This may cause a long delay if the sequencing happens over the weekend which also causes a delay in the secondary analysis.
The situation can be improved by scanning the "run archive" for the RunParameters.xml file. It should not be too complicated since we can use the barcode of the flowcell to located the correct data folder. If the RunParameters.xml file is found it can be returned to the browser via a JSON request and then we simply hook into the same code that already exists just as if the file was selected with the "Browse" button.
