    Posted 09-07-2015 10:25 AM

    Hi all,

         I have created the reports based on MAPGEN and SADGEN (FLOWDOC) for one of my scheduled application. In the SADGEN report I am getting the live scheduled details based on the job schedule. But for External jobs it is not giving the external application under which it is defined. Using MAPGEN we can able to get the application of external job. So to generate the Report for next batch run we are using the SADGEN for live data and MAPGEN for the application of external jobs. Is there any other option to get the Application under which the External job is defined in SADGEN Report. (

    Note: We have same job running under different application)


      Also in both MAPGEN and SADGEN report, if the external job is releasing some job and if it is having scope, it is reflected in the SADGEN report. But for most of the cases we are looking for yesterdays batch. So we scheduled the externals as (Scheduled Yesterday 7.00 to Today 6.59) and the Main job as (Scheduled Today 7.00 to Tomorrow 6.59). This case is not reflected in anyone of the reports. Please help me to identify the way that whether the job is looking for the PRED of today batch or yesterday / some other previous day batch.


    Let me give a example for this scenario.


    APPL COPYJOB

     

    IF TODAY IS SUNDAY THEN

         LOOKBACK = (Scheduled Yesterday 7.00 to Today 6.59)

    ELSE

         LOOKBACK = (Scheduled Today 7.00 to Tomorrow 6.59)

     

    JOB FTPJOB EXTERNAL %LOOKBACK

      RELEASE ADD COPYJOB

    ENDJOB

     

    JOB COPYJOB

      RUN DAILY

    ENDJOB


    Thanks

    Siva

    Hi Siva,

     

    Do you have EXTERNAL specified on SADGEN statement?

     

    EXTERNAL

    Adds an extra entry on the SADGEN data set for each external job found within the specified scheduling criteria.

     

    Generally ESP may not be able to resolve the variable accurately at forecast report time, will you consider to use following instead?

     

     

    JOB FTPJOB EXTERNAL SCHED('7.00 TODAY UNTIL 6.59 TOMORROW')

      IF TODAY('SUNDAY') THEN JOBATTR SCHED('7.00 YESTERDAY UNTIL 6.59 TODAY')

      RUN DAILY

     

     

      RELEASE ADD COPYJOB

    ENDJOB

     

    Hope this helps,

     

    Lucy

    Hi Lucy,

     

    Thanks for the reply.

    While creating sadgen report we used external option.

    As you said, we tried by giving the scheduling directly without using variable. Still we cannot able to get the prediction for look back detail.

     

    Thanks
