Issue in 2019.3 with Python tool as first tool in workflow

Fireball

I'm using snakeplane to develop a custom tool and it was working fine until I took the optional input connection away and made it the first tool to execute in the workflow.

 

Here's a screenshot showing the debug without the input to the custom tool and then adding the input (with 0 records) back to the custom tool.

Hi @c2willis! Would it be possible to attach your tool and a workflow with the tool in it? That makes it easier to test and troubleshoot. Thanks!

Hey @BlytheE 

 

Sorry, been busy and unable to create a tool that I can share here. A confirmation that this is expected/unexpected behavior might be enough for now, until I can get something back to you.

This is definitely undesired, if you post an issue on the Github repo we'd be happy to address this in the near future!

Thanks @DrewE ! I got some time today to make a quick example tool to show the behavior. Posted to github as requested.
