An ESP event failed to trigger due to Informational message 900I.   

Sample statement in error:   JOBATTR HOLD REASON('this is a long string and exceeds 28 characters') 

Messages issued:       ==>ESP528E ERROR OCCURRED PROCESSING EVENT xxx  

                               ==>ESP900I STRING TOO LONG

                               ==>ESP1800I ABOVE ERROR OCCURRED ON FOLLOWING STATEMENT IN JOB xxx 

                               ==>ESP1007I JOBATTR HOLD REASON('this is a long string and exceeds 28 characters')  


CA Workload Automation ESP Edition r11.4


In this case, message ESP900I was correctly issued, and it prevented the application from generating.  Message ESP900I is produced by a CA WA ESP parser routine, and may have different text.  This is the only informational message that can prevent an application from generating. 


Correct the statement that was flagged as error by the ESP900I message.

As best practice, all new/updated applications need to be simulated prior to running in production.  A batch SIMULATE job will return CC=08 on an ESP900I message.   Online SIMULATE will display the following additional messages:  

     ==>Errors detected                                

     ==>Simulation detected errors in Event processing 

All messages (Informational, Error) need to be reviewed and corrected.
