Description

We currently have a 'created_resources' field on tasks but what if plugin writers want to store extra information that is arbitrarily structured and searchable.

Some possible options:

1. Create a TaskResult object or something similar in the database and return it in 'created_resources'
2. Add a field to tasks.
3. ???

  • Subject changed from As a plugin writer, I can return information in a task result that's not stored in the database to As a plugin writer, I can return arbitrarily structured task data
  • Description updated (diff)
  • Status changed from NEW to CLOSED - WONTFIX

This idea originally came from a discussion with the Galaxy folks about their needs. They currently don't have that need and can either use ProgressReport or custom Model fields to store any extra data they want without involving puplcore code. I'm going to close as WONTFIX, but please reopen if you this Pulp should do this.
