This was also asked here: How do I change the default OOD job path to point to the home directory?.
We started on this https://github.com/OSC/ood-myjobs/pull/302 thinking it would be a quick feature to add, but there are problems with the design of the app as it exists. See Morgan’s comment.
A possible solution to the problems he mentions would be to remove the ability to delete the associated job directory when deleting a “job” from the Job Composer app. Instead, the deletion of the “job” would actually just delete the reference from the sqlite3 database, and recommend to the user to remove the actual files if they want to. Another option would be to mark this record as “deleted” so the job doesn’t appear in the list of jobs, but a user could still get access to a list of paths of “deleted job references” whose job directories still exist, so if the user wants a list of job directories that are candidates for deletion, they can do so.
There is still the problem that by adding job directory references you could have job directories containing job directories. Then again, that might actually become a “feature”.
Besides my suggestion here, do you have another solution for addressing problems that could be introduced by adding this feature?
Thank you for the feature request!
