Test Batch Workflow

The test_batch workflow is designed to test the processing controller logic concerning processing block dependencies.

The sequence of actions carried out by the workflow is:

  • Claims processing block

  • Reads value of duration parameter (type: float, units: seconds) from processing block

  • Sets processing block status to 'WAITING'

  • Waits for resources_available to be True

    • This is the signal from the processing controller that the workflow can start

  • Sets processing block status to 'RUNNING'

  • Does some “processing” (i.e. sleeps) for the requested duration

  • Sets processing block status to 'FINISHED'

The workflow makes no deployments.



  • Use dependencies from the central artefact repository and publish the workflow image there.


  • Ported to use the latest version of workflow library (0.2.4).


  • use python:3.9-slim as the base docker image
