Dear all,

Either there is something very wrong here or I am missing something very basic and I apologize, I am trying to run the following line of code to test a measure.

# class level variable @@co =

Unfortunately, I get the error back: in `<class:pushcustomresultstomongodb_test>': uninitialized constant OpenStudio::Runmanager (NameError) (see attached screenshot).

I have 'required openstudio' so ruby should be able to access the constructor for this class from the openstudio SDK. What am I doing wrong here?

Many thanks

Are you using OpenStudio 2.x?

If you are using 2.x, and create a new reporting measure using the interface it will have a test that is capable of running simulations with the CLI instead of run-manager. I'll make a note to update our web-documentation for this which appears to still show 1.x test code.

If you are using OpenStudio 2.x then RunManager has been deprecated in lieu of the OpenStudio CLI. That test code would need to be rewritten to call the CLI.

@antonszilasithis link is to the template reporting measure test you get when you make a new reporting measure in 2.x OpenStudio. It is setup to run both on 1x and 2x.

The first 130 lines are boilerplate methods, just replace the test itself which is on these lines. Only a few lines even in this section need to be changed.
