Summary:

Produce Detailed JOB and SCHEDULE History Report with the new features and enhancement to History Reports for CA Scheduler Job Management.

Instructions:

The HISTORY function has been enhanced in CA Scheduler r11.0.  In addition to the existing JOB HISTORY, you can obtain a report on the SCHEDULE HISTORY.  The report format has been expanded to contain more detailed information. Date, time and any change that occurs from the moment the job or schedule enters the active workload until it leaves the active workload are reported.

The following are included in the detail history:

  • Entering/leaving active workload

  • Submission/starting/completing/abending/failing

  • HOLD/RELEASE

  • TALTER/FORCE

  • SUBMIT/RERUN

  • RESTAGE/staged JCL being edited

  • FORCE/CANCEL/CP

  • Backlogged

Here is an example of a JOB HISTORY Detail.
