Valid Agent Names

When a new agent is created, you need to make sure that the name you are providing is a valid one. Here are the rules for giving your agents valid names:

  • Agent names need to be unique
  • An agent name cannot be a number (e.g. "35"), but can contain numbers (e.g. "Bob35")
  • Every character in the name needs to be an alphanumeric character (0-9, a-z, A-Z). A name can also contain dashes (-), underscores (_)
  • Spaces or dashes in the name will be replaced with underscores (_)
  • The length of agent names should not exceed 20 characters
  • Agent names cannot be words that are reserved by AgentSheets (e.g. __mysimulation__)

AgentSheets will warn you if you violate these rules.
