Issue/Introduction

Can a wildcard be used in the 'path' for a USS trigger job?

Example:

 DSTRIG USS.FOPTBCLN 
DSNAME '/u/FOLD1/SUBFOLD/xfer-' USS

 

Environment

Release : 12.0

Component : CA ESP WORKLOAD AUTOMATION

Resolution

Wildcard character in USS file is currently not supported by the ESP DSTRIG function.

DSNAME must have the full path and filename. 

Example:

DSTRIG USS.FOPTBCLN 
DSNAME '/u/FOLD1/SUBFOLD/xfer' USS

. If filename xfer is created, the trigger occurs.

. If filename xfer.txt is created, the trigger will not occur.

. if filename xfer_1218200205 is created, the trigger will not occur.
