Question:

How to filter out only mainframe jobs on CSF for CA Workload Automation ESP Edition?

 

Environment

CA WA ESP Edition Z/OS

Answer: 

Use following in the freeform filter:

WOBTYPE < ' ' 

Note: This will however display also LINK and TASK jobs. Use following to filter them out as well:

WOBTYPE < ' ' AND NOT_LINK AND NOT_TASK

Additional Information:

Related information on “Command Reference Guide” should be adjusted to:

“WOBDEF command”-> “JOB and TASK description”:

Short Name: ' ' (blank) for history reporting. The field contains X'00'(hexadecimal zero) and because of this everything less than a ' ' (blank) needs to be used for a CSF freeform filter, for example, WOBTYPE < ' '.
