A File_Trigger job is set to trigger an event after the file arrives. If the event is placed on HOLD, and then RELEASE after the file arrives, the event does not get triggered.
Sample FILE_TRIGGER job:
FILENAME 'c:\temp\test.txt' CREATE CONTINUOUS(T001) NOCHANGE(2)
(Alert T001 triggers an event.)
Release : 11.4 and 12.0
Component : CA ESP WORKLOAD AUTOMATION
This is working as designed.
If an event gets triggered via an alert or a monitor point, and the event's hold counter is positive, the event is not triggered.
The same applies to using SUSPEND and RESUME.
Solution: Hold the application instead of holding the event. Release the application when it is ready to run.
Ex: APPL applname HOLD
