Automate Opening Up Each Scenario that Needs to Processed

Status: New Idea

As a user I want to be able to access my results without needing to wait to open each one of my finished scenarios and wait for them to processed. 

This can take a lot of time especially if you take advantage of 360 to run multiple simulations overnight.

 

We understand compiling these results without having the UI open would be difficult, but being able to tell the UI after you have opened the design study to loop through all pending jobs would save some time from having the user cycle through each finished job.

Could triggers be used to accomplish this task?  One of the events in the triggers functionality is solver finished.

Hi Heath,

 

I did look into using Triggers, but the issue is if you loop through a model that has some scenarios that have already been processed we don't know what the state of that model and when to move onto the next one.  Likewise, if I were to loop through a model that is still solving in the cloud, I don't know that either.

 

I think triggers would work if you only send all your jobs to the cloud and you wait for all of them to finish.

 

We can talk about this more offline.
