Issue/Introduction

We have CA View r14.0 installed on one of our systems, and we have the following set for the retention period of SYSOUTs (in the SARSTC //SARPATAB DD statement):

/*M           ALL RETPD=40  DRETPD=4  XCOND=YES                   
/*Q           ALL RETPD=40  DRETPD=4  XCOND=YES                   
/*A           ALL RETPD=40  DRETPD=4  XCOND=YES                   
/*            ALL RETPD=20  DRETPD=4  XCOND=YES     

That is:

Jobs that end in M have RETPD of 40 days
Jobs that end in Q have RETPD of 40 days
Jobs that end in A have RETPD of 40 days
All other jobs have a RETPD of 20 days. 

What needs to be set, in the //SARPATAB DD ... do we have to set /*******M instead of /*M?

As well, we do not see the JES datasets (joblog, JESMSGLG, JESJCL, JESYSMSG) for a particular job run, using the View online, using the Report ID 'R' selection criteria .

Environment

Release : 14.0

Component : CA View

Resolution

In an ERO table statement, for the SYSOUT ID, the wildcard character (*) can be specified at any position in the ID to indicate that any "single" character can match in that position, unless the "*" is at the end of the string, whereas it can represent multiple characters. 

For example, entry /*M would apply to a 2-character Sysout ID ending with "M". 

To refer to an 8-character Sysout ID, it would be "/*******M". 

The JES datasets (joblog, JESMSGLG, JESJCL, JESYSMSG), if they exist, would be part of the report and would be browsed with any use of "Select By ==> R".

If the JES datasets are not seen, that would mean that they were not collected as part of the report. 

On the View Primary panel, use of "Select By ==> R" ignores the Index Name fields.
