  • 1.  Successor to all Workload Objects in Application

    Posted 11 days ago
    On the mainframe, CA Workload Automation ESP Edition r12.0.00, has a statement "APPLEND' that executes automatically after all other workload objects have completed except workload objects that are successors to APPLEND. Can anyone in the dSeries community advise if there is a comparable statement in dSeries? I have a large dSeries application where I want all jobs to complete before a job is executed.

    Hi,
    So in DE, there are several dependencies that can be used.   For a job to run at the very end, you can create a dependency between jobs, and put the last job at the very end.

    Thank you Nitin but this application has many jobs and depending on the time of day, the last job will vary. I can define everything as a pred. I was just looking for an easier way.

    Hi Kelly,
    Do you have lots of jobs that are by themselves or independent of other jobs?

    There are several ways to create a last job in DE.  You can use a LINK job at the end. All jobs (and job streams) can point to this last job as successor.

    You can also look into Global Variables, and create a job dependency, see here.
