With honeybee, is it possible to run an annual simulation without glare analysis

I'm trying to run annual illuminance simulations, but don't want to run image based glare analysis. The DSParameters module has a boolean input to run only glare analysis, but not a boolean to run only illuminance analysis. Is there a way to turn off the image based glare analysis in the annual analysis recipe? A null view perhaps?

Hi @Andyrew,

The short answer is yes. The default is to only run annual illuminance study. You can disconnect the DSParameters in that case. Here is an example.

Also a note about inputs in Honeybee and Ladybug:

A _requiredInput will start with _ and ends with no _. _requiredInputsWithDefaultValues_ has _ on both sides, optionalInputs_ has an underline only at the end.

Both DSParameters_ and onlyRunGlareAnalysis_ are optional inputs. Also check this link for a clean description of inputs and outputs..
