tracking stresses through different loadcases

I have an assembly which is bonded together.

 

I want to assess the affects of changing constraints on the stresses in one of the glue joints. The model geometry doesn't change, just the restraints and some contact details so I can try various scenarios by duplicating the simulation and making minor changes.

Is there a way of automatically extracting the normal and shear stresses on the two faces of the glue joint from through the different scenarios? I've been manually probing the surfaces but it's getting a bit tedious.

 

Sensors don't seem like the answer but I may have missed something.
