Creates or retrieves a Project or multiple Projects from a SsimLibrary.

project(
  ssimObject = NULL,
  project = NULL,
  sourceProject = NULL,
  summary = NULL,
  forceElements = FALSE,
  overwrite = FALSE
)

Arguments

ssimObject

Scenario or SsimLibrary object, or a character string (i.e. a filepath)

project

Project object, character, integer, or vector of these. Names or ids of one or more Projects. Note that integer ids are slightly faster (optional)

sourceProject

Project object, character, or integer. If not NULL (default), new Projects will be copies of the sourceProject

summary

logical. If TRUE then return the Project(s) in a data.frame with the projectId, name, description, owner, dateModified, readOnly. Default is TRUE if project=NULL and SsimObject is not Scenario/Project, FALSE otherwise

forceElements

logical. If TRUE then returns a single Project as a named list; otherwise returns a single project as a Project object. Applies only when summary=FALSE Default is FALSE

overwrite

logical. If TRUE an existing Project will be overwritten. Default is FALSE

Value

Returns a Project object representing a SyncroSim Project. If summary is TRUE, returns a data.frame of Project names and descriptions.

Details

For each element of project:

  • If element identifies an existing Project: Returns the existing Project.

  • If element identifies more than one Project: Error.

  • If element does not identify an existing Project: Creates a new Project named element. Note that SyncroSim automatically assigns an id to a new Project.

Examples

# \donttest{ # Set the file path and name of the new SsimLibrary myLibraryName <- file.path(tempdir(),"testlib_project") # Set the SyncroSim Session, SsimLibrary, and Project mySession <- session() myLibrary <- ssimLibrary(name = myLibraryName, session = mySession) myProject <- project(ssimObject = myLibrary, project = "My project name") myproject2 <- project(ssimObject = myLibrary, project = "My new project name") # Get a named list of existing Projects # Each element in the list is named by a character version of the Project ID myProjects <- project(myLibrary, summary = FALSE) names(myProjects)
#> [1] "14" "1"
# Get an existing Project. myProject <- myProjects[[1]] myProject <- project(myLibrary, project = "My new project name") # Get/set the Project properties name(myProject)
#> [1] "My new project name"
name(myProject) <- "New project name" # Create a new Project from a copy of an existing Project myNewProject <- project(myLibrary, project = "My copied project", sourceProject = 1) # Overwrite an existing Project myNewProject <- project(myLibrary, project = "My copied project", overwrite = TRUE) # }
