Issue/Introduction

Question: 

When we add new dates to a calendar, all the start times for the jobs using that calendar are recalculated. Is this a normal behavior ?

 

Environment:  

Workload Automation AE (any release)

 

Answer: 

Yes, this is a normal behavior. It is documented in "WA AE Release 11.3.6 Reference Guide", page 69 :

 

 

"When you update a calendar, CA Workload Automation AE recalculates the starting times for all jobs that use the updated calendar."

 

To avoid any side effects, the recommended solution is to update a calendar only when there are No jobs running that references the calendar.
