First of all I would like to thank you all for the great work that you put in QIIME2.
I tried to run the diversity core-metrics/core-metrics-phylogenetic plugin, but failed to provide a metadata file. According to the instructions in QIIME2 docs it should be able to pass the --m-metadata-file option, but this gives a failure when running the script in QIIME2 (2017.9) reporting that no such option exists.
Indeed when I call the help function for this script it does not show an option to provide a metadata file. Also when using QIIME2 Studio I do not see an option to provide metadata.
many thanks in advance,
