Many IDF objects are still not supported by the OpenStudio SDK.

However we would like to run these IDF objects on OpenStudio Server.

I suspect that the best way to do so (and perhaps the only?) would be to inject these IDF objects via an EnergyPlus measure once the OpenStudio workflow is running on the OpenStudio Server.

I'd appreciate any input on this question. Does this sound correct?

Thank you!

That sounds right and in fact there is an Inject IDF Objects measure, however that measure just adds object, which may be fine for a configuration or tariffs. But if you need to connect to IDF already in the OpenStudio generated IDF file, then you need to customize measure or add second measure to connect things together.
