  • 1.  Syntax of the command for Call API on Linux

    Posted 06-30-2017 05:00 AM
    Good Morning,

    When I'm trying to use the Call API command for Linux (AE v12), I always have an access denied if I put the number of my client and the user with department in the command.
    But if I enter this information in the ucblx6c.ini file, I can connect to the system.

    I'm using this command, without informations for user and client number in the .ini file :
    PATHCALLAPI/bin/ucxblx6c SCRIPT=PATHSCRIPTCALLAPI/scriptoa LOGON=0100, CALLAPI, UC INI=PATHCALLAPI/bin/ucxblx6c.ini

    If I use this command (without the LOGON part in the command) I can connect to the system if the Client Number and Login are in the .ini file :
    PATHCALLAPI/bin/ucxblx6c SCRIPT=PATHSCRIPTCALLAPI/scriptoa INI=PATHCALLAPI/bin/ucxblx6c.ini

    I also changed the UC_USER_LOGON to allow connections without a password...

    Does anyone have the solution? Thank you for your help

    Just tested it on my system out of the BIN directory of my CALL API:

    ./ucxblx6c SCRIPT=script.txt LOGON=0001,BRW,SUP,[password]

    BRW is my user and SUP the department


    20170630/124433.326 - U03000000 Program 'UC4 Call Interface', version '11.2.5+build.321', change list '1497346055' started.
    20170630/124433.326 - U03000017 Build Date: '2017-06-13', '11:32:35'
    20170630/124433.810 - U03000004 RunID '1454058'
    20170630/124433.811 - U03000001 Program 'UC4 Call Interface' version '11.2.5+build.321' ended normally.

    hope this helps.

    Hello Willem,

    1 - Does the user have the privilege "Logon via CallAPI"?

    2 - Correct syntax is as follows :
    CallAPI file SCRIPT=script file [LOGON=client, user, [department [, password]]] [INI=INI file]
    Your start command looks like this:
    PATHCALLAPI/bin/ucxblx6c SCRIPT=PATHSCRIPTCALLAPI/scriptoa LOGON=0100, CALLAPI, UC INI=PATHCALLAPI/bin/ucxblx6c.ini
    The LOGON part may be missing a parameter, or may be misconfigured - :

    Client = 100
    User = CALLAPI
    Department = UC
    Password = no entry

    Please adjust the parameters if needed. You mentioned UC_USER_LOGON has been set to 'no' so a missing password should not be the problem. I'd just suggest to check to be on the safe side.

    Best regards,
    Antoine

    Thank you gentlemen for your answers.

    I picked up FrankMuffke's answer :

    Just tested it on my system out of the BIN directory of my CALL API:

    ./ucxblx6c SCRIPT=script.txt LOGON=0001,BRW,SUP,[password]
    Without spaces between the comma and the user, and between the comma and the department, It works ! :wink:

    I have always tried with these spaces precisely as marked in the documentation. That's why it did not work.

    Thank you Antoine_Sauteron and @
    "Wolfgang Brueckler" for your help.

    Best Regards,
    Willem

    You are welcome :-)

    Indeed Docu is a bit unclear in this case - I added a comment to documentation.

    Possibly you cold ask (or create a PRB :-)  ) the DOCU collegues to add an example for Linux

    Hi,

    WillemBERROUBACHE611464 : thanks for the good feedback!

    FrankMuffke : Sure I can ask for a docu fix. I'll go ahead and create an PRB to let our documentation team know.

    Best regards,

    Hi again,

    PRB00135290 was created for this issue.
    I also tested on Windows, and it also fails if LOGON= contains spaces between its parameters.

    Best regards,
    Antoine

    Hi Antoine_Sauteron  my old friend,

    Do you have any news for PRB00135290 ?

    I am just courious because I stumbled over the space issue once again :-)

    cheers, Wolfgang

    Hi FrankMuffke

    Thanks for the follow-up. The PRB was closed some time ago, after a documentation fix.

    I checked again, and... the docu is still invalid :(

    The CallAPI only works if you don't use spaces between the different parameters.

    This works :
    LOGON=client,user,department,password

    This doesn't :
    LOGON=client, user, department, password

    Looks like it was fixed for some time, then replaced with an invalid version (overwritten?). I guess I'll create another PRB with the same description...

    Best regards,
    Antoine

    Hi Antoine_Sauteron

    THX for the quick reply!

    I crosschecked with V12.1 - here its correct.

    Possibly some [enter characterization here] did only fix the V12.1 docu and ignored V11.2

    => Yes, could you please create a new PRB for that?

    THX & have a great day!

    Wolfgang

    Posted 02-15-2018 05:39 AM
    Hi FrankMuffke

    Thanks for the additional information about 12.1 - however it still contains an unneeded extra space:
    CallAPI file SCRIPT=script file [LOGON=client,user,[department[ ,password]]] [INI=INI file]

    PRB has already been created : PRB00220219

    I entered you as the main contact so you can follow its progression :)

    Best regards,

    Better store the Ticket numbers in a static variable, it's safer :)

    Hi FrankMuffke

    Just got the answer from the documentation team :
    documentation for v11.2 is not changed anymore. It cannot be built anymore because of tool changes that were made.

    Any z/OS (platform MVS, SW OS/390) users getting this same error??? I am. I'm actually testing v11.2 load lib and binary files with v12.1 AE.

    This is the same files we're using in our 11.2 AE and it works (i.e. the CALLAPI).

    Error MSG:

    U03000000 Program 'UC4 Call Interface', version '11.2.2+build.622', change list '7627775' started..

    U00003413 Socket call '0' returned error code '0'..................................................................

    U03000002 Program 'UC4 Call Interface' version '11.2.2+build.622' ended abnormal..............................
