Currently, Distribution ID can only be filtered in Modes EXP and SAR. Why are Modes ALL, EXPO, and SARO disabled? Should they all be allowed to filter for a specific value if needed?
Release : 14.0, 12.1, 11.5
Component : Output Management Web Viewer
Release : 14.0
Component : CA View
This is working as designed. Web Viewer filtering by DistID is allowed for EXP or SAR mode only, and Modes ALL, EXPO, and SARO are disabled because of the View application.
From the View doc for modes - Access Outputs Using the Distribution Selection
Please note the only two modes that reference the DIST ID are EXP mode and SAR mode.
Web Viewer cannot filter by DistID when the Mode ALL, EXPO, or SARO is selected because View does not support it. Web Viewer cannot perform what View does not allow.
EXP and SAR modes are the only View online modes that reference DIST ID. This is because of the way that View is designed.
View's ALL mode is for ALL reports.
EXPO mode is for all reports to View from Deliver.
SARO mode is for all reports that View collected from JES.
JOB mode is to find reports via Job information, no DIST ID there either.
That is why filtering by DistID is allowed for EXP or SAR mode only, and why Modes ALL, EXPO, and SARO disabled in Web Viewer.
