CA7 Basics & Commands

CA-7 Basics & Commands

Add a one-time requirement:
Use the ADDRQ command to manually add temporary, one-time, pre-execution user or predecessor job requirements. These requirements must be added to the job while it is in the CA-7 request queue. These added requirements apply only to the current run of the job.

SYNTAX:
Add a job dependency requirement:
ADDRQ,JOB=job name or job number, DEPJOB=job this run is dependent on

Add a user requirement :
ADDRQ,JOB=job name or job number ,USR=text


Cancel a Job :
Use the CANCEL command to delete jobs from the CA-7 queues. This command only removes the job from the CA-7 queues. Cancellation of a job in the CA-7 active queue or ready queue (if it has been submitted) does not cause termination of the job's execution. CPU jobs which may be executing have to be canceled from the operating system separately.

SYNTAX:

CANCEL,JOB=job number or job name, FORCE=YES,REASON=text

(Note: If you want to cancel the job without removing it from the CA-7 queue, do not specify FORCE=YES.)


Change a Job submit time :
Type the 'XQ' top line command to get to the queue maintenance screen. Type a 'U' beside the job you want to update, and hit enter.

MESSAGE: CHANGE DESIRED FIELDS OR ENTER A COMMAND ON THE TOP LINE


Delay schedule start and due out times :

Use the ADDSCH command to delay scheduled start and due-out times for up to 24 hours.
You can use this command for a specific job, or for an entire workload in the case of a major unexpected and unscheduled change in the environment.

Syntax:
ADDSCH,JOB=nnnn or ALL,TIME=mmmm
nnnn specifies the CA-7 job number of a single job
mmmm specifies the amount of time to be added to the start time and due-out time of the job in minutes

e.g. ADDSCH,JOB=2502,TIME=0060
Be careful when using JOB=ALL. This command will then apply to every job in the request, ready, active, and post-process queues.


Demand a Job into request queue :
It is advisable not to use DEMANDH to run nightly cycle jobs during the day. The
post-processing will cause the out-conditions to be posted, possibly allowing any
successors to execute as soon as CA-7 brings them into the request queue. Use
RUNH instead.

Use the DEMANDH top-line command to demand a job into the CA-7 request queue:

DEMANDH,JOB=job name, SCHID=schedule ID

e.g. DEMANDH,JOB=GSAJPORF,SCHID=070
You will be prompted to enter hold information (name, phone, reason for hold). Go to the request queue and review your job to make sure it has the appropriate requirements. If everything looks okay, release the hold requirement.
Schedule ID is required procedurally, but is not required by CA-7. Be extremely careful to use the correct SCHID when demanding jobs into CA-7. If you do not specify a schedule ID, CA-7 will use the first schedule ID it finds in the CA-7 database, which may not be the one you want.

Edit the execution JCL :
Note: If you are not the on-call SE but plan to restart a job, you need to contact the on-call SE and let them know. When you edit the execution JCL in CA-7 it does not prevent someone else from editing the dataset and they can overlay your changes.
Type the XQ top line command to get to the CA-7 Queue Maintenance Screen. Tab down to the job you want to edit and type an 'E' beside it and hit the Enter key.

You will see the job requirements on the following screen. To post a requirement, type an 'X' beside the job name and hit enter.

JOB: GSAJPWH2 CA-7#: 2502 MCNT: 001
F-TYP-NUMBER-E-DESCRIPTION
X SUB WAITING FOR SUBMIT TIME (16:45)

PULL JCL FROM ALTERNATE LIBRARY:
When a job comes into the request queue, CA-7 will first search the alternate library for the JCL. If the member name is found in the alternate library, the JCL will be pulled from there. If the member is not in the alternate library, then CA-7 will search the champ JCL library.
JCL Library JCL ID
PGSAJ.SSBCH.JCLPDS 013
PGSAJ.SSBLB.DYNJCL 104 Alternate Library for 013
The alternate library will be used for JCL overrides (e.g. coding the JCL to pull a source member from FIXLIB instead of PRODLIB.) It will also be used for any JCL that gets written out from an ALC module (Draw, Catalog).
We have EID write access to the alternate library.

RELEASE A HOLD REQUIREMENT:
To release a job that has been put on hold, enter the 'XQ' topline command to go to the queue maintenance screen. Type an 'R' beside the job you want to release, and hit enter.
(Note: Posting the hold requirement accomplishes the same thing as using the Release.)

REQUEUE A JOB:
The easiest way to requeue a job is with the requeue command:
REQUEUE,JOB= jobnumber or jobname
You can also accomplish this through the queue maintenance screen. Type the XQ top line command to get to the CA-7 Queue Maintenance Screen. Tab down to the job you want to requeue, type a 'Q' beside it, and hit the Enter key.
Note: If the job is in another queue, you can use the XQ,Q=RDY command to get to the ready queue, or use the XQ,Q=ACT command to get to the active queue.

VIEW JOBS IN REQUEST QUEUE:
XQ -> Lists all jobs in request queue (but only the jobs you have ACF2 authority to view)
XQJ -> Lists jobs in jobname sequence
XQM -> Lists jobs and a summary of job requirements
To view the jobs in other queues add Q=queue parameter
Eg: XQ,Q=RDY to view the ready queue
XQ,Q=ACT to view the active queue



CA-JCL check:
Use the LJCK command to list JCL for a CA-7 job. JCL is fetched from the library indicated on the DB.1 panel or its alternate. LJCK keyword values for DATE, TIME, and SCHID may affect the display if scheduled overrides such as #JI and #JO are used. If the CA-Driver procedures are used, LJCK displays CA-Driver JCL modifications.

Syntax:
LJCK,JOB=jobname,DATE=YYDDD,TIME=hhmm,SCHID=nnn
DATE, TIME and SCHID parameters are optional.

The execution JCL for the specified job will be evaluated by CA-JCLCheck and all JCL substitutions, procedure expansions, errors, and other messages returned by CA-JCLCheck will be displayed inline following the relevant execution JCL statements.

CA-7 JCL overrides:

#JI Overrides
Indicates the statement are to be included based on the specified scheduling criteria.

#JO Overrides
Indicates the statements are to be omitted based on the specified scheduling criteria.

#JEND
Indicates the end of a set of override control statements

#SCC
Statements placed within the JCL to define step level condition code tests used to determine whether the job completed successfully. To use these statements, the job must be defined on the DB.1 screen with a condition code of 0 (zero) and the relational operator of #S.

Additional overrides and examples may be found in the CA-7 Database Maintenance Guide Section 10.

















CA-7 Commands

/DISPLAY,ST=JCL
Use this command to obtain information about the JCL libraries attached to the CA-7. The ST=JCL parameter provides the information about the JCL libraries and their associated ID number.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

/DISPLAY,PRINT=SCH
Use this command to obtain the information about Schedule Scan (SSCAN). The PRINT=SCH provides the information about SSCAN such as INCR, SPAN, QDWELL intervals and the next run.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

CANCEL
CANCEL,JOB=jobname or job number,FORCE=YES,REASON=text
Cancels job out of CA-7 Request Queue.
If job is in the Ready or Active queues, cancelling it in CA-7 would not prevent the job from running. It would only prevent CA-7 from tracking the job. If you need to cancel a job that is awaiting execution (ready queue) or executing (active queue), cancel it from SAM or call the operator and have them cancel the job.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

DEMANDH
DEMANDH,JOB=jobname,SCHID=nnn
Use this command to request a job to run in CA-7. This command will place a HOLD on the job which must be posted. A reason will be required. The SCHID parameter should be nnn if triggering is not to be done. If triggering is needed, then the appropriate SCHID should be supplied. Caution should be used when executing jobs from the batch cycle during the day. Doing so could cause problems during the next nightly cycle.See also RUNH
