Add an app using raw CWL


This call creates a new app by adding a new CWL app description.{app_id}/raw



Recall from the API Overview that the app_id has the form {project_owner}/{project}/{app_short_name}/{revision_number}

Note that if you omit the revision_number field, the API will use the latest app revision.

You can create the {app_short_name} for your app when you upload it. It can be any string of alphanumeric characters, with no spaces. Note that the app's given name (a full human-readable string) is contained in the CWL that you POST.
