Issue/Introduction

Since we have a rule for $HASP395 and other for $HASP3* the two will be processed on every $HASP395 event, the rule order it will from more specif to the least one.

Would it be possible to write some code so the rule for $HASP395 prevents the $HASP3* from running?


Environment

Release : 13.0

Component : OPS/MVS

Resolution

The solution is to insert code in the generic rule to bypass message ids that have their specific rules.

For example:

)MSG $HASP3*
)PROC
if msg.id = '$HASP395' then return
/* rest of the $HASP3* rule code */

Another approach can be using the event variable MSG.USER. A value can be set in the less generic rule so that the generic rule can inspect the variable to make decisions.

For example:

)MSG $HASP395
)PROC

msg.user = 'NOAUTO'
/* rest of the $HASP395 rule code */

The generic rule would test the value of this variable:

)MSG $HASP3*
)PROC
if msg.user = 'NOAUTO' then return
/* rest of the $HASP3* rule code */
