Import objects via Rest-API not possible if VERSION_MANAGEMENT is Y


Article ID: 240933

CA Automic Workload Automation - Automation Engine


The import of objects via Rest-API since the upgrade of the Automation Engine to 12.3.7HF1 or superior fails systematically with error "500", the same operation works fine if AWI is used instead.

The culprit seems to be that in UC_CLIENT_SETTINGS, the variable VERSION_MANAGEMENT is set to Y, this operation produces the following errors with a Posgresql database in the JCP log when importing UC_HOLIDAYS.F via Rest-API:

20220412/150948.873 - 38   U00045197 FileSync: Import object 'UC_HOLIDAYS.F' of type 'CALE'
20220412/150948.910 - 38   U00045014 Exception 'com.automic.database.api.DBException: "UPDATE OKG SET OKG_OH_Idnr = ? WHERE OKG_OH_Idnr = ?"' at 'com.automic.database.impl.DBConnectionImpl.executeInternal():475'.
20220412/150948.911 - 38   U00045015 The previous error was caused by 'org.postgresql.util.PSQLException: "ERROR: insert or update on table "okg" violates foreign key constraint "fk_okg_okb"

20220412/150948.912 - 38   U00045099 The server replied with following status: '500'

The same operation with an Oracle Database throws a similar error:
