If you are a new user to DE apps, you may want to review Using the Apps Window and Submitting an Analysis before you begin.

For information on submitting a high-throughput or batch analysis, see Using HPC Apps in the DE and HT analysis path list file for use in high-throughput and batch file execution.


The fields that are required for an analysis depend on the app as it was designed by the integrator. Before you can launch the analysis, you must complete all required steps, which are marked with an asterisk. For information on how to use an app, or to contact the integrator, click next to the app name in the Apps list to open the app information section.

  1. In the Apps window, find the app to use.


    If this is an app you use regularly, you can make it a favorite app (not available for HPC apps) to find it more quickly the next time you want to use it.

  2. Click the app name to open the app.

    About HPC Analyses


    A user can run only 5 HPC analyses at a time, and only 1 HPC analysis if it is running on the large-memory queue. You can launch additional analyses via the DE, but they will not be submitted to the XSEDE system until another analysis finishes. At the moment, although CyVerse does not limit the total amount of compute time per user, we may need to begin doing so as demand for these resources increases. For more information on HPC apps, see Using HPC Apps in the DE.

  3. The app opens, displaying the panels for the app, as defined by the app's integrator. Required fields are displayed with a red asterisk next to the field and on the panel header. Complete each field in a panel and then click to open the next one. On the first panel:

    1. Change the analysis name (optional). See Using Special Characters in the DE for notes about special characters in analysis names.
    2. Enter any comments about the analysis, if you want (not available for HPC apps).

    3. Verify the output folder. To change the output folder location for this analysis, click Browse and navigate to the existing folder.


      Selecting a folder that is not your default output folder may result in overwritten data. If you regularly use a different output folder, you can change the default.

    4. To have a copy of all input files returned to the same folder as the analysis results, select Retain Inputs (not available for Agave apps).
    5. To receive an email notification when the status of the analysis changes, set the email notification preference.
  4. Click to open the input data panel:
    1. Click Browse in the input file field, navigate to the file location, and click OK.
    2. Repeat for each input file to select.
      See HT analysis path list file for use in high-throughput and batch file execution for steps on high-throughput or batch analysis.

  5. Open each remaining panel and, at minimum, complete each required field.
  6. Click Launch Analysis and then click OK to begin the analysis.


    If the analysis does not launch, at least one field on one of the panels contains a required field that has not been completed. All required fields must be completed before you can launch the analysis.

 Not sure if the analysis completed, or want to cancel the analysis?

To quickly check if the analysis has completed, click or refresh your browser window.
Want to cancel the analysis? See the Canceling an analysis section on Relaunching, Canceling, and Deleting Analyses, Viewing Analysis Outputs and Info.
