Cryptic Error from Create_DOE_Prototype_Building [closed]

asked 2017-04-01 14:23:24 -0600

I am running an AWS analysis using the DOE prototype buildings as seed models. I am using OpenStudio Server 1.21.16 and the latest openstudio-standards gem (local build of develop "branch"). On AWS, my experiments are failing with this error:

Loading Measure from /mnt/openstudio/analysis_482e03ad-70e1-47cb-8ae4-ddfba273b441/measures/create_DOE_prototype_building/measure.rb","[19:07:00.713001 INFO] Iterating over arguments for workflow item 'create_doe_prototype_building'","[19:07:00.714193 INFO] Setting argument value 'epw_file' to 'Not Applicable'","[19:07:00.714918 ERROR] /opt/rbenv/versions/2.0.0-p481/lib/ruby/gems/2.0.0/bundler/gems/OpenStudio-workflow-gem-ca6ec0037615/lib/openstudio/workflow/jobs/lib/apply_measures.rb failed with message Error assigning argument in measure /opt/rbenv/versions/2.0.0-p481/lib/ruby/gems/2.0.0/bundler/gems/OpenStudio-workflow-gem-ca6ec0037615/lib/openstudio/workflow/jobs/lib/apply_measures.rb. Failed with Could not find argument map in measure for 'epw_file' with value 'Not Applicable'

This is the only error that appears in the JSON file. However, when I run create_doe_prototype_building from OpenStudio (1.14.0) using Apply Measure Now, it works. Has anyone encountered this and figured out a fix or workaround?

Apparently, I am an idiot. (Shhhhh ... don't tell anyone.) There was a dangling weather file argument in my spreadsheet, which I guess is no longer needed with more recent versions of the standards gem.
