Dear UnmetHours' members,

I am studying optimizing building energy performance.

In my case, I generally use Jeplus+ea.

But, sometimes, when I put many parameters into .json file, JEplus+ea cannot progress. I think this is because too many parameters cause not to open the folder. (Because long JobID name)

Can I change the automation option of Job string or Job Id in Jeplus+EA? Please let me know the way..

@Yi Zhang

Dr. Zhang, I would be thankful if you let us know the solution that I am suffering

Oh dear, how many parameters do you have in the project? :) You can send me ( the project files to have a test.

@Yi Zhang Dr. Zhang, unfortunately, I can't send it to you because it is under development for paper publishing. My model has 72 parameters.

Sincerely Thank you.

If you are on Windows, this may help On Linux or Mac OS, however, the max length of each path component is limited to 256 characters, hence folder names of your project with 72 parameters might just fit.

Dear Dr. Zhang Unfortunately, though I changed the system option, it still suffers a not readable problem... But I am very thankful to you. I will reduce the sampling space.
