Run Configuration

The Run Configuration panel is used to specify the parameters, analysis elements and file resources of the model that must be transferred to the cloud model version.

To access the Run Configuration panel 

  1. Double-click the Run Configuration element in the model tree.

The Run configuration panel is divided into two areas. 

Note: The elements of the Outputs section will be automatically grouped if there are more than two elements of the same type.
Note: The sections are instantly updated, i.e. a new element becomes listed here as soon as you place it onto the top-level agent diagram.

The text field inside the element's block allows to set the label for the added element that will be displayed in the AnyLogic Cloud user interface. In case of a Parameter element, its Label is used by default, if any. In case of an Output, its name is used by default. In case of a Chart, the Title of its data item is used by default. If the chart data contains multiple data items, the Name of the chart is used.

The Search field that is located in the left part of the configuration panel performs search within the tree of elements only.

To add an element to the exporting Inputs/Outputs

There are three alternative options of adding an element to the list of the to be exported elements:

  1. Right-click the required element and select Add from the context menu.

  2. Double-click the required element in the tree of elements. It will be automatically added to the Inputs or Outputs section, depending on its type.
  3. Drag-and-drop the required element from the tree to the corresponding section on the right.
    The added element will be highlighted in grey in the tree of elements with its icon acquiring a green check mark (e.g. ).

  4. If you try to add a resource file that does not satisfy one of the required conditions, the drag-and-drop operation will fail and AnyLogic will display an error message.
To add several elements to the exporting Inputs / Outputs
  1. To add a number of elements, select them by holding Ctrl and clicking the elements you need to add. Release the Ctrl button when selecting is done.
  2. Now you can do either of the following:
  3. You can also add all input / output elements at once by dragging Inputs / Outputs header to the corresponding area on the right. In this case, all elements will be successfully added, including the resource files that do not satisfy the necessary conditions. These will be marked by the  warning icon. You need to either remove them from the Inputs / Outputs or make the necessary changes to make these files valid. Otherwise, it will prevent the export of the model to AnyLogic Cloud.
To remove an element from the exporting Inputs / Outputs

There are three alternative options of removing an element from the list of the to be exported elements:

  1. Right-click the required element and select Remove from the context menu.

  2. Double-click the required element the Inputs or Outputs section.
  3. Click the  Remove icon of the element's block in the Inputs or Outputs area. 



Export model to AnyLogic Cloud – opens the wizard, allowing to export the model to the Cloud. Alternative ways of exporting a model to Cloud are described here.

Top-level agent – Here you define the top level agent by selecting the required agent from the drop-down list of the available agents. The agent of this type will play a role of a root for the hierarchical tree of agents in your model.

Maximum available memory – The maximum size of Java heap allocated for the model.

Model time

Stop – Defines if the simulation in Cloud should be stopped and when to stop it. 

Stop at specified time – Simulation will stop at the time specified in the Stop time option below.

Stop at specified date – Simulation will stop at the date specified in the Stop date option below.

Start time – Here you define the simulation starting time point.

Stop time – [Enabled if the Stop at specified time option is selected in the Stop parameter] Here you define the time point at which simulation will stop.

Start date – Here you define the simulation starting date.

Stop date – [Enabled if the Stop at specified date option is selected in the Stop parameter] Here you define the date at which simulation will stop.


Animation stops – Defines if the animation in Cloud should be stopped and when to stop it.

Never – animation will be running until you stop it.

According to Model time settings – animation will be stopped according to the settings of the Model Time section.

Execution mode – Choose the animation execution mode here:

Virtual time (as fast as possible) – The model will run at its maximum speed with no mapping to be made between model time and real time. This time mode is useful when you need to simulate your model for a long period of time.

Real time with scale – In this mode you specify how many model time units one second takes. It is frequently needed when you want your presentation to appear as in real life.

Enable zoom and panning – If selected, the user will be allowed to pan and zoom the model animation window in AnyLogic Cloud.
