Simulation resources can have several different related statuses. They form the history of a simulation lifecycle. For a detailed description of all states see the statuses chapter.

Status History

To see the whole status lifecycle of a simulation check the /simulations/{id}/status/history/ API endpoint.


GET simulations/{simulation_pk}/status

Retrieve the latest, thus current simulation status.
