Im trying to run PAT Algorithimic analysis to optimize a suite of measures but want to do so automatically via script vs manually from the GUI. Is there a way to do this? I understand a work around is to create a bunch of scenarios and run via .OSW/CLI, however I need to operate to PATs optimization engine first in order to determine the scenarios I need to run in OS. Lastly, I understand there was some plans to allow modification of the PAT.json file and associated documentation to support but im not sure of the status of that, or even if can solve my problem.

Any information/ideas most welcome.

if you turn on the developers tools, under the view tab, you can see the actual metaCLI commands that pat is using and make a ruby script based off of that.
