Apply Upgrade gets rid of Building Characteristics Report?

Hello everyone,

I'm loading project_singlefamilydetached from ResStock into the Parametric Analysis Tool, and an issue I'm running into is that whenever I have an upgrade applied, my results.csv file does not produce ANY entries for the building_characteristics_report columns. Entries for simulation_output_report columns are produced fine, and I see my upgrade name filled out in the "simulation_output_report.upgrade_name" column, so I know my entry for Apply Upgrade is not being ignored.

However, when I choose to skip the Apply Upgrade measures, THEN my results.csv file produces entries for the building_characteristics_report columns. Is anyone else experiencing this issue? I really don't know what the problem is, since I have the "Building Characteristics Report" measure unchecked for both situations.

When was the last time you updated to the latest version of the OpenStudio-BuildStock repository? I ask because we've recently (around Sept 23) corrected an issue in each of the three default PAT projects related to what you are talking about. See this closed issue for reference. I'm pretty confident that if you update to the master branch of the repository, your issue will be resolved.

Hello. I have updated to the newest OpenStudio-BuildStock repository, but the building characteristics will not show up when apply_upgrade.run_measure is 1 for a run. When apply upgrade is 0, building characteristics still appear.

It is intentional that building characteristics do not show up for an upgrade row. See for some context.
