Set CA7 dependencies programmatically

Postby DonkeyKong » Thu Apr 09, 2015 9:07 pm

Is this possible? I want to have a job run only when a lot of other jobs have been run, but the list of jobs will change over time. Is there anyway for me to set dependencies using JCL? Thanks.

Are all these jobs running under the control of CA7?
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Update: I found this which could probably do what I want to do --- clist-rexx/topic9034-20.html

Can anyone help me with what the CA7 command to create a job dependency would look like?

Would you not get a faster and more accurate answer by contacting the vendor? Responses on this forum are dependent upon people having the time, interest, and knowledge to respond -- so sometimes questions may sit out here for hours or days (or forever) without an answer. At least CA will get back to you quickly, and if your site is licensed for CA-7 then you can contact CA support.
