Hi Bram.

I think it is preferable for only the plate to get a different name while the images retain their regular well names (e.g. "A01"). This was actually the case in one of the development revisions of omero (around revision 6700?).

It's certainly not the intention, when importing a screen to override all the Image names. That's definitely a bug.

A ticket for the review of all of this as it applies to screening datasets is here:


We'd be happy to take into account any usage you're currently making. Do you have the code available?

We'll certainly look at the best usage for the command line arguments and the API for the 4.2.1 patch release for which ticket #2648 is scheduled.
