I'm looking into using scripting to run the analysis on an OSServer. I followed JS files and been able to boil it down to this line which runs the analysis. I noticed there're log after every command and all of that should be stored in a file somewhere. For that line specifically, it's followed by if (vm.Message.showDebug()) vm.$log.debug('FULL run_analysis command: ', full_command);

My questions are:

  1. where can I find the log file which shows the full_command (I installed PAT as part of the latest 2.9 OS installer)

  2. What's the best way to use scripting to automate the workflow and bypass PAT?

    2.1 Create project Json/Zip

    2.2 Run analysis on already started server

@Abekhit this isn't something that we publicly support at all, but I have setup a repository that shows workflow that converts OSW to OSA json and sets up the ZIP file as well. The bottom of the readme shows how run the meta-CLI which will run an OSA on an already running server

Note, that PAT does need to be installed, and, unless you enter full path in the command line, you need to setup environmental variable, or on mac line in .bash_profile that looks like this export PATH="/Applications/OpenStudio-2.9.1/":$PATH

Thanks @david-goldwasser. I want to create project using PAT the first time then edit/tweak it as needed. If we expanded scope, we'll use OSW2OSA.

Changed the console log level to Verbose and info and debug were printed. The window on the right is from view > Toggle Developer Tools.
