I have created a CA Dispatch MSGCLASS EVENT with the MESSAGE field syntax coded as:
However, i can only see the following on the operator console: "DC980025 DEMAND,JOB="
Notice - There is no variable substitution value shown in the DC980025 message for the JOB=&TEXT specification.
Release : 11.7
Component : CA Dispatch
Unlike CA Dispatch "REPORT EVENTS" which have a "report text move" option that can be defined on their VRDMU116 screens, MSGCLASS EVENTS do not provide this same report text move functionality.
Because of this, specification of the &TEXT parameter in a MSGCLASS EVENT event is not valid.
From the example outlined in the Introduction section of this article, the only thing you would see on the operator console is "DC980025 DEMAND,JOB=" because that's what you have coded in the msgclass event MESSAGE area on the VSGMU185 screen for this event.
The only two variable substitutions allowed for a MSGCLASS EVENT are the documented parms:
&JOBNM = Replaced by the Jobname
&JESNO = Replaced by the JES Number
