Issue/Introduction

Data Extraction Jobs in Clarity fail when writing file to SFTP in SaaS environment. This happens intermittently and not always reproducible.

Cause

The failure is caused by a "stale file handle" exception. Below is error.

java.io.exception : Stale File Handle.

The issue is caused when external applications try to read the file when file is being written to SFTP location.

Environment

Release : 15.6

Component : CLARITY SAAS JOBS

Resolution

This can be resolved by changing the schedule of external applications to retrieve files after they have been written to SFTP location.
