How can I use AAI's simulation to see the downstream impact of putting jobs on hold?
Release : 184.108.40.206
In AAI 6.4.2-5 there are two new REST API calls available on the Swagger page that will allow you to either run a simulation or pull simulated jobRun data.
1. In order to see the downstream impact of putting a job or jobs on hold, you can run a Simulation through either the Web UI or through the REST API, for a specific time period in the near future, with no other changes.
2. Then use the steps in How do I run a Simulation via the REST API and view simulated Job Runs via the REST API in AAI? to pull the simulated jobs runs from GET /jobRuns/simulationRuns.
3. Save the json output.
4. Run the simulation again this time putting one or more jobs on hold and get the results as you did in step 2.
5. Save the json output.
7. Import the json in a spreadsheet and a diff tool and compare the results.
