During an ESP to DE conversion, we identified a functionality gap between DE and ESP for Dataset Triggers Events.

In ESP, there is a DSTRIG keyword called RENAME that will allow ESP to detect a dataset that has been created, then renamed to our target dataset name.

Here is information from the ESP techdocs on this functionality:

https://techdocs.broadcom.com/content/broadcom/techdocs/us/en/ca-mainframe-software/automation/ca-workload-automation-esp-edition/12-0/reference/commands/dstrig-command-define-event-level-data-set-triggers.html

Look for the RENAME keyword.

There is no equivalent functionality in DE to send that keyword to the z/OS Agent so it can monitor with that behavior.

There is no workaround within the product, and the only option at this time is to redesign the process that will create the dataset we are monitoring for.

We are requesting that this be added to the enhancement backlog.
