How to use metadata in q2-sample-classifier

So I need to make a separate metadata file - two different files? Is there background on what the second metadata column file should focus on for use as a prediction target?

ā€“m-metadata-column MetadataColumn[Categorical]
Column from metadata file or artifact
viewable as metadata. Categorical metadata
column to use as prediction target.
[required]

Error: Missing option: --m-metadata-column

HI @mudbugecology,

Have you seen the tutorial? This should help clarify your questions. Please ready that for more, but short answers:

No. One file, specified with --m-metadata-file

Column name corresponding to that metadata file.

See the tutorial for clearer examples.

Good luck!

That makes sense. Thank you, Nicholas!
