Cylc 8 UIs
There are two UI options available to monitor and control workflows at Cylc 8.
Cylc TUI is a text based UI, available on the command line with
cylc tui <workflow_id>.
It remains in development, with smooth running with large workflows soon to be resolved.
This replaces Cylc 7’s
Cylc Web GUI
Cylc 8 web GUI is available, both as a single user application,
and as a multi user hub,
cylc hub. Both are dependent on Cylc UI Server installation.
Launching the UI via the hub will require authentication. The default Authenticator uses PAM to authenticate system users with their username and password.
Going via the hub unlocks the ability to grant other users the permission to view and interact with workflows running under your account. Site administrators will need to configure this, for more information see Authorizing Others to Access Your Workflows.
See UI Server Configuration for how to configure the GUI.
As some workflows can be very large, or even infinite, the UI uses a “window” system to determine what to display. For more information, see Tasks in the UI.
The UI continues to be developed.
