#1391 closed enhancement (wontfix)

The import button in experiment overview when all raw bioassays are imported gives confusing message

Reported by: Jari Häkkinen Owned by: everyone
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: web Version: 2.13
Keywords: Cc:

Description

The message says

No usable plugins found

No plugins can be used in this context, for the following reasons:

    * Could not find any plugins that you have permission to use

The issue is really that BASE cannot find any non-imported raw bioassay in the experiment. Adding a non-imported raw bioassay to the experiment makes the import button to present the expected plug-in selection pop-up.

The message should say that all raw bioassays are already imported. The current message triggers many support request from users.

Milestone: BASE 2.13.1
Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

This is a standardized message appearing at all places were no plug-in can be used. I guess you don't want the suggested message in all those other places.

You can get a much more detailed message by enabling the Show plug-in warning messages when starting a new job option in the BASE->Preferences dialog (Plugin tab).

Note that this will display the output from all possible plug-ins and is maybe even more confusing but somewhere in the list should be a message stating: The experiment doesn't have any raw bioassays with files waiting for import.

Hm, I suppose this should enter the FAQ section.
