It looks like you can specify a tool or workflow to jump straight to
but not a history. The following pull request
) extends this
functionality to include histories.
You will need the encoded history ID as returned by the workflow and
history API to use this - e.g. on my test laptop the following URL
worked to switch histories after applying the patch in the pull
request - http://localhost:8080/root?history_id=1cd8e2f6b131e892
Hope this helps,

Good afternoon John,
We are running a self defined workflow in Galaxy and have a unique history
for each dataset we are working on. This workflow is run repeatedly to
tackle an entire dataset, requiring the user the use Galaxy multiple times
with other steps outside of Galaxy.
The user enters via a web app, and we would like to bring the user into
their Galaxy account with the correct history loaded for the dataset they
are trying to process.
Is there a way to specify the history when starting Galaxy, not just use the
last one from the previous session?

Subject: Re: [galaxy-dev] Opening Galaxy with a specified History Name
Can you please elaborate on what will be driving this? You can
certainly create a history and run jobs with the API. It sounds like
what you want though is an external web application or something that
will have a link to create a new history for the current users's
session. I'm not sure this is currently supported since this wouldn't
involve the API but it can probably be hacked together for your
