Issue/Introduction

Two users issue the same CTRANLOG command in Sysview V16.0: CTRANLOG DATE 2020/07/29 TIME 11:50:00 WEBSERVICE S*

The first one gets the expected result, the only transactions listed are matching WebServices starting with "S*".

The second user gets the unfiltered list of all transactions instead. It seems that the WEBSERVICE parameter is just ignored.

Cause

The user that gets the unfiltered list was using the default masking characters as defined in the default profile while the other user was using a customized setting. 

 

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : SYSVIEW

Resolution

Set the same masking character for both users  :

SET VLMASKCHAR  *                             ( VLMaskchar  -  Specifies the special character to be used as the variable length masking character)
                  |                                                     

SET FLMASKCHAR   %                           ( FLMaskchar  -  Specifies the special character to be used as the fixed length masking character)
