Handling the output of an external tool

When Output file from CL is chosen for a parameter in the General configuration area, a drop down list appears beside it. The possibilities, and how those are configured, are described below.

In the last field presented, the name of the file the external process is expected to produce can be entered. If this field is left blank, the base name of the file produced by the external tool will be used as the base name for the data element imported into the CLC Server.

When Output file from CL is chosen for at least one parameter, the end user will need to provide a location on the CLC Server to store the results. This will be the case even if the output of the external file will not be imported, as log files will still be written to the location selected.
