Issue/Introduction

After upgrading Applications Manager, specific Jobs may go into Aborted status due to the errors "jobid has changed" and "Error 3 setting job to RUNNING status". 

Below is an example of Job's output with the highlighted errors in red:

Error 3 setting job to RUNNING status

While the above errors can be due to multiple causes, one reason this may occur is an error in the User that is requesting the Job. 

If the User requesting the Job has a "Last Name/Description" value containing a space AND is not surrounded by double quote in User's object definition, the above error is triggered.

 

Cause

In previous versions of Applications Manager, likely version 8.x and below, it was found that if a User's 'Last Name/Description' value contained a space between the value, it would result in unexpected behaviors.

To fix this issue in a later version of Applications Manager, any value containing a space in between the 'Last Name/Description' value would be auto encapsulated with double quotes (ie "Dev User") upon selecting Apply/OK.

Due to a 30 character limit on the 'Last Name/Description' field value, a 'Last Name/Description' value containing a space in between must be shortened to 28 characters since the auto encapsulation of double quotes brings the character count to 30.

This article's error can be seen when the following requirements are met:

  • Running a version of Applications Manager where 'double quote auto encapsulation' on the 'Last Name/Description' field was not introduced
  • Have an existing User object whose 'Last Name/Description' value contains 29 or 30 characters which included a space in between the value
  • Upgrading Applications Manager to a version where 'double quote auto encapsulation' rule exists

When the above requirements are met, the 'double quote auto encapsulation' rule can not be applied to the User during upgrade as the extra double quotes will increase the current character count of the 'Last Name/Description' value from 29 or 30 to 31 or 32.

This creates a configuration where the User's 'Last Name/Description' value is missing it's double quotes even though its value contained a space in the value, which results in this article's erroneous behavior

Environment

Component : APPLICATIONS MANAGER

Resolution

  1. Edit the User object that is assigned as the Requestor of the Aborted Job.
  2. Shorten the 'Last Name/Description' value to 28 character or less if retaining a space in the value or 30 characters if removing the space in the value
  3. Apply/Ok
