When defining a PDS or PDSE to the external tracking table (SASSXDSN), CA 7 only triggers the job if the PDS or PDSE is updated by a batch job. If I update the data set using TSO EDIT, CA 7 will not trigger the job. What causes this behavior?
Release : 12.0, 12.1
Component : CA-7
We do not recommend this due to the possible amount of records that can be created by a PDS.
The reason this process work when using a batch job is the batch job will process the dataset as a sequential file and therefore the PDS indicator is not on in the SMF type 15 record and CA 7 will process it regardless of the PERFORM 6 option.
