It was noticed that a job had a run_num of zero, yet other jobs had run_num values above zero.
What would cause a job to have a run_num of zero?
Workload Automation AE 11.3.x
If a job is within a box it will inherit its run_num from the parent box.
If the parent box has never run before its run_num is zero.
As a result, if the the inner job is force started it will run with a run_num of zero.
This is not a problem. This is expected behavior. Eventually when the parent box runs it will get a new run_num which the inner jobs will use.
