id in CommandLineTool causes dot graph to not be printed correctly

See original GitHub issue

cwltool --print-dot workflow.cwl produces an empty output if CommandLineTool has an id field. I was not able to identify a further root cause, but If the id field is removed, than --print-dot works correctly as expected.

Expected Behavior

digraph {compound=true
"workflow_with_id.cwl#my_step" [label="my_step"]

this is the expected graph. This is what gets correctly printed if I remove the id root field from the my_step.cwl file

Actual Behavior

digraph {compound=true

Workflow Code


class: Workflow
cwlVersion: v1.0
- class: StepInputExpressionRequirement
- class: InlineJavascriptRequirement
- class: MultipleInputFeatureRequirement

  foo: string

    type: string
    outputSource: my_step/bar

    run: ./my_step.cwl
        source: foo
    out: [bar]


class: CommandLineTool
cwlVersion: v1.0
id: my_step
  - echo
  foo: string
    type: string

@itajaja With more recent versions of cwltool and schema-salad it seems your issue have been fixed!
