Known Issues

The following issues are known to exist in Workspaces. If you find any other issues while using the workspace, please alert us via the service desk.

Profile Editing

It is currently not obvious for a user how they can make changes to their profile (such as correcting a misspelt name or job title) after they have created their profile. If you need to make a change to your profile, please contact the service desk.

Virtual Desktop access restrictions

Please note that Windows Virtual Desktops can only be accessed by one user at a time. Linux desktops can be accessed by multiple users at a time.

Creating folders in Blob storage

Currently, it is possible to follow the process above to create a folder in the Blob storage. Due to the nature of blob storage, folder hierarchies cannot exist without content, so if you create a new folder but don't store something in it, you won't be able to see it again.

Tile image on Mini-apps

In the current version, the image used as the tile on Mini-apps must be named "tile.png" (capitalising .PNG will mean that the tile does not show).
There is also a bug where the image may not show on the mini app unless you have viewed the image in the app's home folder; this should make the tile show on the mini app.

Cannot install rstan package using R 3.6.3 console

Within the R Console, users will find that they cannot install the rstan package if they are running the console on R 3.6.3. Users can install this package when running the R console in other versions of R

System commands stop displaying in the R Console after 5 minutes

If you run a system command in the R Console, wait five minutes and then run it again, the second run will not show. We are working on a fix for this.

Cannot make case changes to file names

It is currently not possible to make changes to a file name if you are only changing the case of some letters (e.g myfile.txt to MyFile.TXT). We suggest using the naming pattern when you first create files in the workspace.

The data table editor doesn't work with large files

Sometimes, when you try and open the data table editor or analysis modules for a large CSV file, the editor or modules will not open as the file is too large. We are working to increase the size limit so that this doesn't happen.
