General Overview

Taverna-prov is a plugin for the Taverna Workbench and Taverna Command Line – a scientific workflow engine. The plugin allows the export of the provenance of a workflow run according to the W3C PROV-O standard.

The provenance is exported as a file  which species a structured ZIP file with a manifest (.ro/manifest.json) that corresponds to the RO bundle specification.

The following is an example bundle and unzipped bundle as a folder. This data bundle has been saved after running a simple hello world workflow.
