Issue/Problem/Symptoms: 

Link PROCESS not issuing commands on CA Workload Automation ESP Edition

Environment:  

CA WA ESP Edition Z/OS

 

Cause: 

The root cause is related to its predecessor which reset the global variable value, and the value affects the IF logic on APPL level.

Resolution/Workaround:

#1 Remove the LINK PROCESS and put it in another event which will be triggered by its predecessor.

#2 Add IF logic for the VGET, this way the variable value won't be retrieved when its predecessor is submitted:

IF ESPCUFULLNAME NE 'VGET.LINK' THEN DO

VGET CUTOFF TABLE(CUTOFF)

ENDDO

#3 Put the IF logic on APPL level under "IF ESP_APPL_GEN", like below. This should improve performance too, as the IF logic won't run at process phase:

IF ESP_APPL_GEN THEN DO
