Tivoli TWS and Abended job

Postby samb01 » Mon Aug 01, 2016 2:01 pm

Hello,

is it possible to complete automaticly a job when this job is abended ?

For example, my job is avebded because a step had a RC=U3000

I would like this job was set to the status "complete" when there is an abend. We don't want to see it in the "Error Running".

Thank's for your help.

Hello,

IIRC, a user can set the error tracking option to 'no' in TWS which basically tells TWS to ignore job errors if any.
A quick search returned this. Hope this is what you're looking for.

A word of caution though, you'd really want to check with your site-support/owners-of-the-job-in-question on, whether the said approach is fine; these stop mechanisms are designed as additional fail-safe knowing that programmers can err, removing one can open up a can-of-worms.

Setting error tracking to N will result in the job completing "successfully" for any failure.

It sounds perhaps as though the TS only wants this to happen for a U3000 abend. In this case you need to use the NOERROR parm on the JTOPTS initialisation statement. This will allow you to specify that a particular return code in a particular step of a particular job should be treated as acceptable.

Unfortunately not, I'm not currently working with TWS. But it's well documented in the manuals.
