## run  job X if another job, Y, ends in cc 0, 1, or 4, but do not run X if Y ends in cc 2

Hi, have a coding question for the group.  I need to code an appl where job xxxx will run if another job in the appl job yyyy ends in cc 0, cc 1 or cc 4.  If job yyyy ends in cc 2, then do not run xxxx.

Is there a way of doing this without a yyyy_jobend monitor ?  (or without pug-ugly rexxon?).  We are esp 1.13.

thanks

Hi Mike,

Yes, you may code something like below:

JOB Y

....

ENDJOB

JOB X

...

ENDJOB

See more about RELEASE with COND on Command Reference Guide.

Hey Lucy (glad to hear from you!)

so given:

JOB Y

RUN ANY

ENDJOB

JOB X

RUN ANY

ENDJOB

So Job X will run only if Y gets a 0, 1 or 4...., ie if Y gets a cc 2 or Y gets a cc12..the only possible way for X to run is if Y gets 0, 1, or 4?

any other condition X will simply be BYPASSed coded as above? (I thought I might have to make X a conditional job or something.)

Hi Mike,

If JOB Y is considered successfull with return code 2 or 12, then JOB X will be bypassed.

See the example below in the manual:

Example: Releasing a job based on a job's return code

Successful completion

In this example, if PAYJOB14 completes successfully and the return code is not 8, then PAYJOB15 is bypassed. Alternatively, PAYJOB15 runs if PAYJOB14 completes successfully with a return code of 8.

APPL PAYROLL

JCLLIB 'CYBER.JCL.CNTL'

JOB PAYJOB14

RUN DAILY

ENDJOB

JOB PAYJOB15

RUN DAILY

ENDJOB

Hope this helps,

Lucy

I coded this test appl below and it is still not working.  The 1st test job A#BIEGA0 gets a cc 0….when I run the appl, the 2 successors get bypassed.

I would expect them NOT to be bypassed, but to also run unless A#BIEGA0 gets a cc 2 or a cc3…only then I’d hoped they’d be bypassed

JOB A#BIEGA0

CCFAIL (*,GT,4)

RUN ANY

ENDJOB

JOB A#BIEGA1

RUN ANY

ENDJOB

JOB A#BIEGA4

RUN ANY

ENDJOB

Where did I get off at the wrong exit on this?

Looks like ESP is only honoring the second of each pair of cond(rc stmts

JOB A#BIEGA0

CCFAIL (*,GT,4)

RUN ANY

ENDJOB

JOB A#BIEGA1

RUN ANY

ENDJOB

JOB A#BIEGA4

RUN ANY

ENDJOB

………….so apparently I am limited to just 1

This works if cc is 0 or 1 (successors run if pred cc is 0 or 1….bypassed if pred cc is 4)

……..apparently the 2nd cond(rc stmt overrides the 1st, so can only have 1 such stmt:

JOB A#BIEGA0

CCFAIL (*,GT,4)

RELEASE ADD(A#BIEGA1) COND(RC(4)) <<< apparently ignored or overridden by following stmt

RELEASE ADD(A#BIEGA4) COND(RC(4))  <<< apparently ignored or overridden by following stmt

RUN ANY

ENDJOB

JOB A#BIEGA1

RUN ANY

ENDJOB

JOB A#BIEGA4

RUN ANY

ENDJOB

Found the solution:  OR’ing it worked…….successors ran if preds cc was 0, 1, or 4……..bypassed if pred cc was 2 (or 3)

Thanks!

Hi Mike,

Glad that you figured it out. I replied to the update with same solution, somehow it didn't show up.

So should use the COND with OR instead of multitple RELEASE ADD in this condition.

Regards,

Lucy

Hey Lucy….so wonderful to hear from you. I am back with ESP support but rather than from the system side like I was for so many years, I am now working as a scheduler (with Kelly and her group), which is wonderful.   Since July, our mainframe system support went over to Acxiom, so along with it went our contract…..ergo I have to ask them to open any tickets rather than do it myself, so I was hoping that I could get a response from the community, as it’s the only easy vehicle I have for asking questions now.

Welcome back Mike!

And hope you have a good experience here in ESP user communities.
