After uploading my beta status tool to our test toolshed, I tried installing it on another
of our galaxy servers but it wasn't able to find the api endpoint url. Is there a way
to automatically do this within tool forms? I was hoping to avoid hardcoding this as part
of the tool installation process. I'd thought I had it automated:
In tool's form, a dynamic_options param
<param name="api_url" display="radio" type="drill_down"
label="For user with Galaxy API Key"
was able to pass "trans" galaxy structure so I got as far as this python:
self.api_url = 'http://' + trans.request.host
... but this yeilds
rather than what's needed, the path to a particular installation:
I couldn't find a way to read the /galaxylab/ setting from the (slightly dated)
universe_wsgi.ini config file - without say reading the file and parsing it. Is there an
__app__.config.prefix or somesuch variable where this info is?
