Summary:

You have several file-dependent distributed jobs that need to run between certain hours of the day. If the file hasn't been received by a certain time, you no longer want the job to run. The ABANDON statement works well for a normal job. However, the File Trigger becomes active as soon as it is submitted and the ABANDON statement doesn't apply. At a certain time of the day, you want the File Trigger to end. How can you accomplish that?

Environment:

CA Workload Automation ESP Edition r11.4

Instructions:

Use a LINK PROCESS with a AJ command to complete the file_trigger.

This is the current file trigger:

 APPL abc 
 FILE_TRIGGER thefile   
 /* DESC=Utility to monitor a creation of a file.   
 DELAYSUB 08:00   
 RUN 3RD-20TH DAY OF MONTH   
 AGENT myagent   
 FILENAME D:\this.txt   
 ENDJOB

This is a solution to abandon @23:59:

 APPL abc 
 JOB thefileL LINK PROCESS   
 RUN 3RD-20TH DAY OF MONTH   
 DELAYSUB 23:59   
 REXXON PROC   
 ESPAPPL=CLANGVAR('%ESPAPPL')   
 ESPAPGEN=CLANGVAR('%ESPAPGEN')   
 J=JOBONCSF('thefile','X')   
 DO I=1 TO J   
 IF XAPPL.I = ESPAPPL & XAPPLG.I= ESPAPGEN & XSTATUS.I='ACTIVE' THEN   
 "ESP AJ thefile COMPLETE APPL(%ESPAPPL..%ESPAPGEN)"   
 END   
 REXXOFF   
 ENDJOB
 FILE_TRIGGER thefile 
 /* DESC=Utility to monitor a creation of a file.    
 DELAYSUB 08:00    
 RUN 3RD-20TH DAY OF MONTH    
 AGENT myagent    
 FILENAME D:\readme.txt    
 ENDJOB

In the above example, Link Process thefileL will run @23:59.  At that time, REXX will scan the CSF scoreboard for all active versions of thefile for the current application and application generation.  REXX will then complete the file trigger thefile.
