Issue/Introduction

After the migration an older version to V12.3 we noticed that the Automic script passed via the z/OS CallAPI (UCCALL4) is truncated after 72 characters.

Example:

20191014/130113.718 - U00021719 Syntaxfehler in Objekt '*SCRIPT', Zeile '00001'. 'U01001309 A literal was ended abnormally. ''' missing.'.
 
The script thinks that the line ended prematurely.

 

Cause

Defect where utilizing a PUT_VAR from the MF UC4 cuts of part of the text which causes the script to error out.

Environment

Release : 12.X

Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE

Resolution

Will be fixed in future releases. 

Has been fixed in:

Automation.Engine 12.3.3 - released

Automation.Engine 12.3.2 HF1 - released
