Can list of applications or events be extracted as text

  • 1.  Can list of applications or events be extracted as text

    Posted Nov 18, 2022 01:58 PM
    Hello,

    We sometimes get requests from our application support groups asking for a list of their dSeries applications or events.  While the list of these is easy to pull up based on our naming convention, we tend to end up doing screen shots to get them that information.  Ideally we'd like to be able to provide that information as a text file which would allow them to more easily copy and paste the names when the contact us for changes.

    Is there any way to extract the list of events or applications in a text format?

    Thanks,
    Donna Domovic

    Hi,

    jobmap cli command should be helpful here. It gives information at job level as well. The output can be saved in a text file.
    You can filter out what you want to display based on the DISPLAYFIELDS and NODISPLAYFIELDS options below.

    -> help jobmap
    Usage:
    JOBMAP EVENTS("events") [JOBS("jobs")] [SCHEDULECRITERIA("schedulecriteria")] [DISPLAYFIELDS("displayfields")] [NODISPLAYFIELDS("nodisplayfields")]

    Display jobmap information including the last run of a job.
    Example:
    jobmap events("SCHEDMASTER.VERIFY")
    jobmap events("*")
    jobmap events("SCHEDMASTER.VERIFY") jobs("WIN*")
    jobmap events("SCHEDMASTER.VERIFY") schedulecriteria("friday")
    jobmap events("SCHEDMASTER.VERIFY") DisplayFields("SUCC,PRED")
    jobmap events("SCHEDMASTER.VERIFY") NoDisplayFields("SUCC")

    events <string>
    The Event name. If not specified, all Events details are listed. Wildcard characters are permitted. * represents any string of zero or more characters. ? represents any single character.
    Sequence of characters matching regular expression "[\p{L}\p{N}@$_\.\*\?]*".

    jobs <string>
    The job name(s). If not specified, all jobs details are listed. Wildcard characters are permitted. * represents any string of zero or more characters. ? represents any single character.
    Sequence of characters matching regular expression "[\p{L}\p{N}@$_\.\*\?]*".

    schedulecriteria <string>
    The schedule statement.

    displayfields <string>
    A comma separated field list to display in the output.

    nodisplayfields <string>
    A comma separated field list to skip in the output.

    Hope it helps!

    Hi,
    In addition to job JOBMAP, you can also use LISTEVENT in CLI just to see all your events.  Type HELP LISTEVENT to get more details.

    Ravi and Nitin,

    Thanks for the quick response.  We'll play around with the 2 options you suggested.  

    One follow up question on the JOBMAP option.  In the example, I see you list SUCC,PRED and fields. 

    Is there some place where I can find a list the various field names that can be used in that parameter or other places field names are listed?

    Thanks,
    Donna Domovic

    JOBMAP EVENTS("events") [JOBS("jobs")] [SCHEDULECRITERIA("schedulecriteria")]

    do you have documentation that describes all the schedulecriteria syntax with examples?

    thanks!

    Is JOBMAP supposed to report on all jobs in an application?
    I've run it for an application with twelve monthly jobs and it only reports on the job that is going to run in the upcoming month.
    I had expected it to provide a list of all the monthly jobs in the application.

    HI,

    You can define events in the jobmap to filter out the jobs for particular application.  

    JOBMAP EVENTS("events") [JOBS("jobs")]

    You can define REGEX / wildcard for events to see all the jobs in all the application.

    jobmap events("SS_IBM*") jobs("*")
    and it only displays one job..the one that it's going to execute next month. there are 11 other monthly jobs that are not
    displayed.
    Am I using regex correctly? If it's incorrect, do you have a working example with Regex and jobmap?  I did a search
    for REGEX in the document and could not find an example with jobmap events wildcard you mentioned.
    Thanks for your assistance.

    Looking at the above , regex looks good. Is there any day where all your jobs will run. If so , can you give that in the schedule() parameter.

    If you don't specify anything it will list the jobs for the next execution time only.  In your case the event is scheduled at 3rd weekday at 10AM. So it is listing the jobs on that day.

    So if you want all jobs , you can give the schedule where all your jobs will run.

    Hope it helps!

    Thanks for your help and confirming my understanding of how JOBMAP works!

    Hello,

    This seems to be more a simulation with variables translated rather than listing of job definitions which would include untranslated  variables.  We use a lot of variables in our applications and job definitions and it's important App Teams have an easy way to verify the jobs are set up correctly with the correct variables.  What we're looking for is some way to display the job definitions for all jobs, regardless of when they run, with the variable names.

    Is there any command or way to get that information in text form?

    Thanks,

    Donna Domovic

    Can you please check if the FindJob utility in Desktop Client in Define perspective helps.

    This might be what you are looking for-

    In Define, Right mouse click on the application name and click Save As.
    You can save the application as an XML text file and open as a readonly workbook into Excel for viewing and cut and paste.
    the jobnames UNIX,Mainframe,tasks and links in the spreadsheet should be in these columns when you open the xml file in excel
    name                        column N

    /dst_job/@name N
    /link/@name BE
    /task/@name DE
    /unix_job/@name DS
    /zos_job/@name GV
