Default Automating work flow for a large number of flow cases - star ccm+

Mugen996 is on a distinguished road
I have a set of 1000+ 2D geometries on which I would like to conduct SA flow evaluations. For each case, I'm only varying the target geometry and flow velocity. What options do I have to automate the preprocessing, execution, and post-processing of each run?

To be more specific, I'm trying to replicate this study within Star ccm+:

As you can see all the pre-processing, execution, and post-processing steps are handles within this fairly straightforward python script. I know equivalent macros can be created with java for starccm+ but I have no experience with it.
Are there any python based methods for starccm+?

I also know add-on packages such as are used for design exploration.
Would that be a possible solution?

Finally, ABAQUS had a great feature that recorded all your actions when creating a flow case. You could then see the code for the case and change as necessary to run the same test over a large number of boundary conditions. Does star ccm have similar functionality?
