I am implementing a program using the EnergyPlus Python API and I would like to re-run EnergyPlus multiple times in a single python program. The documentation here: shows an example with python where the call


is used to do this. However, this clear_all_states() call is not available in the runtime api in the code that was downloaded offline. I have also checked the github repo and same thing, the call does not seem to be implemented even though it is in the documentation.

Was this an oversight?

Hi there, I believe I responded to you on the helpdesk as well, but I'll just summarize that yes, that was an oversight. The endpoint has been properly added in 9.4.0 along with many other improvements. Note that the API did change for 9.4.0. 9.4.0 will be released next week.
