Notify for last retry failure ignored when multiple or a range of return codes are listed in Auto-Resubmit

    If a job is set up with auto-resubmit, the "Notify for last retry failure" only works if a single return code is specified to resubmit the job on.

    Example of Listing Multiple Return Codes for Auto-Resubmit:
       JOBA is defined with an alert for failures.
       The auto-resubmit fields are:
       - Retry Count: 2
       - Interval in Minutes: 1
       - Return Codes:  1,3,8
       - Notify only for last retry failure is checked.

    If the job fails 3 times in a row with return code 8, the alert is executed for all 3 failures instead of only the last failure of return code 8.

    Example of Using Single Return Code for Auto-Resubmit:
       JOBA is defined with an alert for failures.
       The auto-resubmit fields are:
       - Retry Count: 2
       - Interval in Minutes: 1
       - Return Codes:  8
       - Notify only for last retry failure is checked.

    If the job fails 3 times in a row with return code 8, the alert is executed only on the last retry failure.

    Ideally if it fails irrespective of exit code it should execute once. Can you please raise a ticket for this.
