Workflow doesn't execute any step after successfully being invoked.

My workflow does not execute any step after being successfully invoked. Under “Step scheduling” there is written: Loading step state summary and under “Job execution” there is written: Loading job summary. Nothing has changed for over 40 hours and the single steps that are included in workflow do work properly on my input dataset, so there is no mistake in the workflow nor in the input data. It just does not “kick off”.
Please help me,



Welcome, @Monika

Is this still a problem? If so, please review the help in the prior posts linked below.

The most important parts are:

  1. Make sure the workflow includes “inputs”
  2. Disconnect/reconnect the “noodles” between tools when an existing “input” type or a tool parameter is modified, or if “input(s)” are added in.
    • Connect the noodles starting from the inputs through downstream tools (left side of the workflow canvas to the right side). This will reset metadata/logic internal to the workflow.
  • Save a copy of your original workflow back before making more edits, in case you need to start over again for some reason.

Note: Not all “input” changes/additions or tool parameters changes can trigger workflow execution problems. The steps above are where to start and resolve workflow execution problems in most cases.

Please review the prior help for more details, add inputs/reconnect noodles first, test it, and we can troubleshoot from there if still a problem. How to stage and share the history + workflow involved is included in the second post.
