Ticket #448 (closed defect: invalid)
Make sample generation a user-aware step
|Reported by:||business@…||Owned by:||work@…|
Sample generation remains buggy sometimes. When I read the code it seems OK to me, but in practice I saw today once almost all samples disappear in a study while working in the wizard, and also sometimes samples that should be deleted are not. See video at http://screencast.com/t/rjxTZTSr for how to reproduce, and after you follow these steps and you click on e.g. 3. Events you also get the following errors:
parent → parent is required and may not be left blank parent → parent is required and may not be left blank parent → parent is required and may not be left blank
I think it would be more transparent to the user to include a 'Generate samples' step where the user actually request the (re-)generation of the samples. We could even supply some options. One important improvement would be to include not only the sampling event template name and sampling event start time, but also other sampling event fields such as Tissue and Organ if filled in. Will create a separate feature request for that if I get that request from more users.
