Export history

The history for a data element can be exported to PDF or to CSV format files. This includes information like the date and time data was imported or an analysis was run, the parameters and values set, and where the data came from. For elements created by a workflow, the name and version of that workflow is included in the PDF export. If created using an installed workflow, the workflow build-id is also included (figure 8.15).

The history information for an element can be seen in the CLC Genomics Workbench by clicking on the Show History view (Image history_16_n_p) at the bottom of the viewing area when a data element is open (see History and Element Info views).

To export the history of a data element, click on the Export (Image previous_folder_16_n_p) in the Toolbar and select History PDF or History CSV (figure 8.13).

After selecting the data to export the history for, you can configure standard export parameters for the type of format you are exporting to (figure 8.14).
