Draft: Adding Photon Isolation to TLA EDM + Backup Photon+Jets

Marco Montella requested to merge mmontell/athena:TLA_PhotonThresholds into 22.0

This MR adds a number of backup triggers for Photon+Jets TLA in order to have a flexible data-taking strategy that can quickly adapt to all scenarios involving the LAr ROS access rate upon machine restart.

The new chains are:


A second batch of chains are added which explicitly require the isolation calculation:


Furthermore, this MR adds the photon isolation variables to the TLA EDM by means of:

PhToKeep = ['topoetcone20', 'topoetcone40', 'etcone20']
PhVars = '.'.join(PhToKeep)
('xAOD::PhotonAuxContainer#HLT_egamma_Photons_TLAAux.'+PhVars,                             'BS PhysicsTLA JetPEBPhysicsTLA ESD', 'Egamma'),


A single-chain test run on a icaloloose chain works as intended. A test run with the full menu (or even a two-chain run with an iso and a non-iso TLA chains) runs into the following error message:
