Issue/Introduction

Manually did a sendevent to change the status of a job to INACTIVE when the job is still running. Later on the job went to a RUNNING status and then to a SUCCESS status.

Cause

Changing the status of a job to INACTIVE, will not kill the job. Job will continue to update the job status until it completes.

Environment

Release : 11.3.6

Component : CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys)

Resolution

When a job is running and the status of the job is manually changed to INACTIVE, the status will change to INACTIVE. But the job will still run to completion and will update the status.
