When using Javeling Flow through TDM the process does not fail correctly.

CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)


if I run this Javelin workflow through a tile in CA TDM portal (after creating data pool using Data Maker and exposing it), the Job is getting ‘Completed’ instead of ‘Failed’.

Below is the .bat file content. I am trying to fail the .bat file explicitly giving Exit code as 1 or anything apart from exit code 0 which signifies batch success. 

echo "Start creating CD_ALL.xlsx">>C:\log.txt
cscript C:\MergeAll.vbs
if %errorlevel% NEQ 10 GOTO :error

GOTO :success
echo "There was an error.">>C:\log.txt
echo "Exit the program" >>C:\log.txt

echo "CD_ALL Macro run completed">>>C:\log.txt

The flow attached works correctly through Javelin directly just not through TDM portal.


TRM 4.8.X 4.9.x

Component: CA Test Data Manager


The portal monitors the environment.Exitcode variable for failures.



In the javelin flow, you need to set Environment.ExitCode :

you need to enable "Success Required" and "Synchronous Call" (in DM) or "Wait for Completion" (in Portal) options for the publish action

Once this was done when I ran the publish through the 4.9.x Portal I received the following logs

Additional Information

Using the Javelin end flow function is not picked up by the portal as a failure.
