Issue filed. Am a bit uncertain if this is actually a bug: nextflow-io/nextflow#1048
Or my own problematic pipeline programming :)

it looks doesn't look like a bug

I thought this was the test case?
Isolated the problem in the pipeline to these lines, buffering a large amount of input?

I'm trying to use the serviceAccount feature of the k8s config in an OpenShift environment. Pods in the namespace I'm running in cannot be launched or watched by the default SA. When I set the serviceAccount in the config the default account is still being used. I see this from nextflow: pods is forbidden: User "system:serviceaccount:squonk:default" cannot create pods in the namespace "squonk". Nextflow claims to have found the local configuration file which I know contains the line serviceAccount = 'squonk' so I would expect the user to be system:serviceaccount:squonk:squonk. Is there a way I can debug nextflow to understand why it's using the default account rather than the one defined in the config? At least to eliminate any error I have made.

put in the config
    k8s {
      debug.yaml = true
then check prod spec created
and eventually open a bug

OK - initial fault was the SA of the nextflow main Pod. I'm past the error and things are working but the pod spec for the spawned pods still uses the default service account. Although this is not causing me problems atm I'll raise an issue to track it. Thanks.

Hi everyone,

I have a quite general question for which I could not find the answer in the nextflow docs:

Is there any possibility to run several nextflow scripts in the same folder in parallel?

Currently I run into issues when trying, I guess because both processes try to access the .nextflow folder simultaneously.
I don't find a way to adjust this (eg. like when renaming the report files).

Hi @k-hench, I suggest you to run the nextflow scripts in different folders
so that you won't have any collision
you can always point to a single folder for input data

I would suggest the same, otherwise, you can try to have the report.file to have a name based on the current run if you really need to run in the same folder

Thanks for the advice :)
I guess I need to keep things separate then...

Hello. I'm working with conda, but nextflow's bash doesn't process login scripts so conda isn't found unless I start bash before running nextflow (I use fish, and conda works no problem for me). Is there any way to force nextflow to bash -l (or some other flag)?
