Issue: 

 
When we try to delete some jobs in order to recreate them properly the operation fails with errors:
 
CAUAJM_I_50200. You don't have Edit Permission on Job. 
CAUAJM_E_50201 : Delete Was not performed"
 

 

Environment: 

 

 

Workload Automation AE (AutoSys) 11.3.x release

 

Cause:

 

The encountered problem is related to the user who is trying to delete and recreate the job Not being the owner of the job.

 

 

Resolution/Workaround: 

 
The solution is to configure the Administrator user who needs to maintain all the jobs as a SuperEdit User in autosys_secure by using the following steps :
 

$ autosys_secure < =====

 

CA WAAE Security Utility

 

Please select from the following options:

 

[1] Activate CA EEM instance security.

[2] Manage EDIT/EXEC superusers. < =====

[3] Change database password.

[4] Change remote authentication method.

[5] Manage user@host or user@domain users.

[6] Get encrypted password.

[0] Exit CA WAAE Security Utility.

CAUAJM_I_60207 Create an EDIT superuser: < =====

 

Input the user name (or hit enter to cancel): root

Enter user host or domain (or hit enter if no host):

 

CAUAJM_I_60069 User successfully added.

 

CAUAJM_I_60207 Create an EXEC superuser:

 

Input the user name (or hit enter to cancel): root

Enter user host or domain (or hit enter if no host):

 

CAUAJM_I_60069 User successfully added.

 
In the above example we first verified the users who are already defined as superuser.
 
Then we added the "root" user as a Superuser.
 
You can add several users as "Super Edit User" and / or "Super Exec User" in autosys_secure as required.
