Running Protocols

Protocols are intended to run on the server. Depending on what you need to do, you can run an entire protocol or a partial protocol. Keep the following in mind when running protocols:

Running an Entire Protocol

To run the entire protocol:

  1. Open the protocol and make sure it’s the active window in the workspace.
  2. Click Run Protocol image/run_but.gif.

While protocol is running, the following visual indicators help you monitor the progress:

Running Partial Protocols

You can partially run a protocol by running only one pipeline in the protocol. You can choose to run the entire pipeline, or to run from a given pipe start component to the end of the protocol.

To run a pipeline, the following is required:

To run to the end of the protocol:

To run to the end of the given pipeline:

Running only a single pipeline

IMPORTANT! A partial protocol will not run if any global variables are defined outside of it, and if they are also used by any components inside the partial protocol. The workaround is to either include the definition of the global variables inside the pipeline, or run from the component(s) where the global variables are defined.
