Workflows Diagram


Diagram elements:

  • Items represent starting conditions, desired outcomes, or required intermediates.

  • Actions show the steps necessary to obtain indicated items.

    • Standard actions can be performed through the portal with no installations.

    • Advanced actions require the use of the python client.

    • Development actions require changes to the code base.

The above shows the possible high-level actions for working with LIMS data, what each action achieves, and how to chain actions together. For example, to get barcoded labels from from physical samples, the action Add Samples must first be done to get ELab Records, followed by the action Print Labels.
