SCP job return code if no file was there - ending in success possible ?

Jump to Best Answer
  • 1.  SCP job return code if no file was there - ending in success possible ?

    Posted 03-30-2016 10:01 AM

    Hello.

     

    I need to end my SCP job type in success even if there were no file at the source of the transfer.

     

    Currently, I got this error in log when no file is available :

    FTPHandler.run[:484] - java.io.IOException: No matching files found

         at cybermation.plugins.ftp.scp.CybSFTPHandler.handleDownload(CybSFTPHandler.java:305)

         at cybermation.plugins.ftp.scp.CybSFTPHandler.run(CybSFTPHandler.java:461)

         at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)

     

    1) Is it possible to end with Success even if there is not file

    2) Is there any document which explain eash return code of an SCP job type ? With this way, I could try to force a "max_exit_success" by example.

     

    Thank you.

     

    Regards,

    Stephane

    Hi Stephane,

     

    As per my tests on dSeries, I do get a failure if the source file is not available. I also confirmed that a zero completion code is returned on success and a non-zero value on failure.  I am not sure which manger you are using, but I would expect other mangers to relay the same completion code.  If you can share which manger you are using, others can confirm this for you.

    Hope this helps in finding a solution for your problem.

    Hi Stephane,

     

    I have confirmed with our Agent development team and the return codes for SCP/SFTP job types are 0 for success and 1 for failure.  Based on this you will not be able to determine the if the job failed because the file does not exists or for any other reasons.

     

    Please feel free to post an idea requesting an enhancement to the CA Workload Automation System Agent community.

    Could you use a FILE_TRIGGER WOB with FILENAME with CREATE to wait until file is created, then RELEASE the SCP?

    Hello.

     

    It’s not easy when the remote server is not in our infrastructure or if it doesn’t have an Autosys Client.
