Setup Copy/Monitor from linked file using Dynamo/API?

Quick question

Is it possible to setup a Copy/Monitor from a linked file using Dynamo/Revit API? and how?

copy_monitor :smile:

Are you referring to this kind of workflow?

naah, I just need to setup a copy monitor on a linked file as a part of a larger “setup models” script. But thanks for the suggestion anyway. :slight_smile:
