 What is the best way to find jobs that may have non-existing dependencies (conditions) in their job definitions?



Component: ATSYS


If the job is already in the database,  use the following command: job_depends -c -J ALL 

If there is a non-existent dependency, ** NOT EXIST ** will appear under 'Current Status' 
In the example below JobABC does not exist.
job_depends -c -J test-Oct27 


(-c (Optional) Returns the current state of the job and the names of any jobs that 
depend on it.)


Job Name   Status/Exec. Mode  Date Cond?   Start Cond?   Dep. Cond? 
--------          -----------------              ------------          -----------       ---------- 
test-Oct27      SUCCESS                  No                   Yes               No 

Condition: s(JobABC) 
Atomic Condition   Current Status T/F 
----------------            --------------       --- 
s(JobABC)            *NOT_EXIST*   F 

Another way to check job dependencies: jil -V batch < inputfile:

 -V none|job|batch|syntax
              Specifies  whether  the  JIL processor should verify the validity of the job
              definitions and that jobs specified in the job dependency  conditions  
              actually exist in the CA Workload Automation AE database.

The jil -V Batch would be used when loading jobs into the Database, if they exist, it tries to INSERT them again. Below is an example of loading a jil file with 1 job definition, with a non-existing condition job.
Whether the job(s) exist or not the report will still identify missing conditions.

jil -V batch < test-cond
