labels - Task labeling


Globus Online tasks may be given a user created, arbitrary label to enable easy categorization and management of lots of tasks.

Commands that create tasks, like transfer and delete, accept a --label option to initially set a label. The modify command can set or change a label of a previously created task, even if the task has already completed.

The status command can show a task’s label and search tasks by label using wildcarding.

Label Format

A label is opaque to Globus Online - no specific form is required, however only certain characters are allowed.

A label may only contain these characters:

  • ASCII upper and lower case letters

  • The digits 0-9

  • space (" ")

  • hypen ("-")

  • underscore ("_")

  • comma (",")

The maximum label length is 128 characters.
