ESP: How to control run criteria at the applciation level

  • 1.  ESP: How to control run criteria at the applciation level

    Posted 12-28-2016 08:56 AM

    I have been laboring under a delusion for awhile that it is possible to control job run criteria at the application level  What I am looking for is a faster way to do this then having to modify every job.

     

    For example, a user requests that an application not run on a specific day.  Each job in this application are coded to RUN DAILY.  Usually we add a line to each job in the application like this:  NORUN <date> or maybe a line that sets the job attribute to REQUEST.

     

    What I am asking is, there a way to do this at the application level?

     

    Thanks!

    Hi Jonathan,

     

    You can add below before the APPL statement:

    IF TODAY('specific_date') THEN EXIT

     

    Then the application won't even be created and no job will run.

     

    You may also add NOSCHED on event level, so that the event won't fire on the date.

     

    Hope this helps,

    Hi Jonathan, 

     

    It would be possible to code a variable at the top of the appl. Put the date in when you don't want it to run.  

    APPL TEMPLATE
    BADDAY = 'DEC 28 2016'

    JOB DPTST001.E CRITICAL
        RUN ANY
        NORUN %BADDAY
    ENDJOB

     

    A different way to handle this would be to put the NORUN BADDAY statement into each job and then add a BADDAY special day to the calendar when it does not need to run. Then it can be turned off easily.

    Prior to the appl actually building, 2 ways of the top of my head.

     

    Change the run daily to run %run

    Set run=daily at the top of the appl.

    Use if today logic to set run=norun any   

     

    We played with variations of this:

    APPLSTART JSTANAME                                      
     NORUN ANY                                              
      IF TODAY('07 JUN,2016') THEN                          
      DO                                                    
       RUN DAILY                                            
    /* EARLYSUB 03:00 */                                    
       DELAYSUB NOW PLUS 05 MINUTES                         
    /* JOBATTR HOLD */                                      
    /* ESPNOMSG AJ ALL COMPLETE APPL(%ESPAPPL..%ESPAPGEN) */
      ENDDO                                                 
    ENDJOB                                                 

     

    The post complete of the appl does function within the applstart.
