Issue:

A user ran the JOBS_FOR_APPLICATION report, and for a job that was resubmitted "x" times in the same application generation, he noticed that only the last execution of the job is listed.

Environment:
CA Workload Automation DE 11.3.xCA Workload Automation DE 12.0.x
Cause:

This happens because, with the present design of the product, it does not retain the previous execution of a resubmitted Job for the same Application generation. Each time a Job get resubmitted the data in the Database specific to the resubmitted job gets overridden by its latest submission detail. 

Even if user performs a "Reset Definition" on a submitted job, the product will override the same record with the Updated detail done through reset definition action. 

For example:

If the Job "A" has been submitted twice within the same application generation, then the product will retain only the 2nd submission detail. 

Resolution:

The product will only create a new record entry, if the Job has gone into FAILED state and the user perform "RESET DEFINITION". This is the way the product has been designed to work as present.
