The following alert was coded to produce an API event so opsmvs can trap it and produce the alert but it's not working. What's wrong?

Release : 20.0

Component : CA Insight Database Performance Monitor for DB for z/OS


To resolve this problem, add MULTIPLE-EXCP-NOTIFY sysparm to the data collector  as shown below:


The QDSTQDBT is a cumulative field and the above sysparm will trigger actions whenever there is any change to that field. 

Additional Information

1. By default, the CA OPS/MVS® Event Management and Automation event, SMTP, and SNMP exception actions are performed only once per active exception (when applicable).
The above parameter allows the actions to be executed again when the exception severity changes or when the exception is detected again (IQL exceptions).

2. Resetting exception time implies that action indicators are reset for that exception and any action will be performed again at specified time.
