Re: [HTCondor-users] job transform: change requirement condition?

Hi Michael,

thanks for the tip with regexps. Unfortunately, the way I have added it
to my job transform seems to have no effect so far.
The job transform should in principle format the Requirement string [1]
but still the resulting job's ad is the old one [2]

From the documentation on regexps I would assume that it should work -
but I am not sure, if 'Requirements' is a 'string target' (should be as
a class ad, or?). Scanning through target also should match and replace
substrings, or?

Cheers and thanks,

copy_Requirements = BaseRequirements
set_Requirements = regexps("OpSysAndVer\s*=\?*=\s*\"SL6\"",
BaseRequirements, "OpSysAndVer == \"CentOS7\"")

> condor_history -l JOB.ID
>> Requirements = ( OpSysAndVer == "SL6" ) && ( TARGET.Arch == "X86_64"
) && ...


String regexps
    (String pattern, String target, String substitute [ , String options
]) Uses the description of a regular expression given by string pattern
to scan through the string target. When target is a regular expression
as described by pattern, the string substitute is returned, with
backslash expansion performed. If any argument is not a string, returns
