Re: [HTCondor-users] Disabling transfer of output files

This should do the trick:

  Transfer_Output_Files = ""

The problem with your approach of setting

Transfer_Output_Files =

Is that condor will not treat the list as empty but instead as nonexistant. The "list" is thus not written to the job data (check via condor_q).

I am probably being dense, but I can't see how to say "don't transfer output
files" without disabling transfer of input files.

If I set

     Transfer_Output_Files =

(empty string), it still transfers the files.

If I set should_transfer_files = No, then I think I will disable transfer of
input files (which I do still want)

when_to_transfer_output has only two values according to the documentation,

Is there a simple way to achieve this, before I start trying
transfer_output_files = /dev/null and transfer_output_remaps ?
