Reduce Task Types¶
A task can also collect information from any number of existing jobs / runs. This is usually useful for reporting purposes.
(Also consider using interactive reports in XF Desktop.)
Access data via CSV tables¶
A workflow can contain more than one source task.
XF.Reporting.Table can be useful as a secondary source task to trigger report runs on demand.
It allows selecting parameters as the columns of a table that is then exported as a CSV table output parameter.
See e.g. Creating plots in a task type for how to use such a table to generate plots.
Access runs dynamically¶
A processing task type can also gather and process arbitrary workflow data dynamically.
xfworkerutil.get_xf_jobs_in_workflow() can be used to load all existing jobs in a workflow.
