Using batch job to bypass a job and to rerun a job in OPC

Postby skwo2 » Thu Sep 19, 2019 12:40 pm

1) I am trying to write a batch job which will bypass a job in an OPC on current plan.

I got the reference materials here: ... -batch-job

Inside, it gives an example

I follow it but my job errors:

2) I am trying to use the OPC RECOVER statement to rerun a job which has a status = C. Nothing happens.
Does the OPC RECOVER statement only work for job with status = E?

Thanks for your help.

1) The error seems clear enough. The work-station RLSE does not exist. Do you believe that it does? RLSE is just an example work-station in the manual. Do you have a work-station of that name?

2) Yes. The purpose of the %OPC RECOVER statement is to recover a job that has failed. Hence they are only processed if the job ends in error.

On what basis does the batch job you are writing decide whether or not to bypass the other job? I would be inclined to set a return code and then use conditional dependencies to flush the other job. Much easier that coding up all the PIF statements.
