#622 new enhancement

SimFactory should not require the user to configure an email address

Reported by: Ian Hinder Owned by: Erik Schnetter
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: SimFactory Version:
Keywords: Cc:


If I try to run "sim build" without configuring simfactory, it reports "Error: required key email in section pelican is missing". Note that I am not running on pelican - it's probably just the first machine that it checks. Not only is the error message very confusing, I should not need to specify an email address to run simfactory (and certainly not for all machines - why is this even a machine-specific option?). I realise that there is the sim setup command, but I don't see the point. simfactory should not have to be spoon-fed information that is either unnecessary or easy to determine. The email address is only used, as far as I know, in job submission scripts. If the email address is not provided, it should be at job submission time that this is reported.

The file defs.loca.ini.sample configures a default email address. Do you configure a default email address in your defs.local.ini?
