Searching for an App, Workflow, or Tool

The Apps list is categorized by your list of apps, and published apps by topic, operation, or HPC, as described in Using Apps.

You can search for a specific app or workflow by name, integrator's name, description, description, or tool in the search field. You also can browse through the categories in each tab, and view information about the tool (executable or binary used for the app) by clicking  next to the app name.

If a tool or tool version is not yet available in the DE, you can request installation of a new tool.

When you find an app you like or use frequently, you can add it to your list of Favorite Apps.

About deprecated apps

If an app name is not returned in a search, the app may have been deprecated. You may want to search for a similar app or contact the integrator to see if there is a suitable alternative or a possibility of unarchiving the app. If you are the app integrator and want to unarchive an app, contact Support for assistance.
