Pathena and training-dataset-dumper

I have a conflict between ca-dump-upgrade (AthAnalysis-based) and submit-trigger that launches prun.
I’m trying the following command:
[shelena@lxplus777 training-dataset-dumper]$ pathena --extFile upgrade_HI.json --inDS mc16_5TeV.800897.Py8EG_A14N23LO_jetjet_JZ5WithSW_bfilter.merge.AOD.e8366_d1521_r11472_r11217 --outDS user.shelena.test --nFiles 2

I appreciate if somebody has an idea of how to move on.


The problem is that pathena launches on the grid, whereas none of the Athena code in training-dataset-dumper uses it’s all launched as an executable python script. It should work fine if you run it with prun instead.

I guess it’s a bit confusing that the new Athena configuration doesn’t use
