Box job went to success while dependent job was set to inactive immediately before it went to success.
Release : 11.3.6 SP8
Component : CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys)
When the status of the same job is being updated to INACTIVE and all the other jobs inside the box are already in INACTIVE status,
the box status is re-evaluated and returns a SUCCESS status as it ignores all the jobs that are in INACTIVE status.
This is working as designed implemented since AutoSys 4.0 version. In case you want this behavior to change, set the Scheduler "BOX_NO_SUCCESS" variable.
BOX_NO_SUCCESS: Specifies whether the scheduler keeps the box in the RUNNING state if all the jobs in the box enter the INACTIVE state.
Valid values are 0 and 1
Default: 0; the scheduler does not keep the box in the RUNNING state if all the jobs in the box enter the INACTIVE state.
Note: If you do not define this variable, the scheduler evaluates the status of the box to SUCCESS when all jobs in the box enter the INACTIVE state.
