Submit a Job Using a Profile

Use a profile that has job arguments pre-populated to submit a job.

Create a profile by populating solver job arguments and saving the information for later use.
Job profiles are customized shortcuts for submitting a job. If you submit lots of job using the same solver with the same arguments, it makes sense for you to use a profile that has these arguments pre-populated for you - streamlining the process of job submission.

A folder is created in the job output directory. It is named based on the job name and job submission time. Job result files are written to this folder. While the job is running results files are maintained on the remote PAS server. These files can be displayed by viewing the contents of the Running Folder tab. Once the job completes, the job results files are written to the Output tab.

Your job will initially be placed into a queue awaiting execution. Jobs can be monitored for queuing, execution, and completion, and the job results viewed via the Jobs tab.
