not able to view output in IXP std out

CA Workload Automation AE


Job writes to a std_out_file, unless its in /tmp, the Autosys Agent cannot read/find the file. 

The log file is created as part of the job executing process through the std_out_file configuration.


For example:

std_file_out:  “/tmp/$AUTO_JOB_NAME.`date +%Y%d%m_%H%M%S`”

Job defintion below output can be viewed in IXP.

insert_job: IIQ_CHECKJVMSTATUS   job_type: CMD
command: /asehome/tools/chkTomcatProcess_simple.ksh
machine: <machine>
owner: <owner>
date_conditions: 0
std_out_file: "/tmp/$AUTO_JOB_NAME.`date +%Y%d%m_%H%M%S`"
std_err_file: "/tmp/IIQ_CHECKJVMSTATUS.err"
alarm_if_fail: 1
alarm_if_terminated: 1





Release : 11.3.6

Component : CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys)


The issue was that the agent process did not have appropriate permissions on files to be retrieved.

Changing permissions of path/files enable users to retrieve std_out_file of jobs using iXp.
