Issue/Introduction

Issue:

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?

 

Environment:  

Workload Automation AE 11.3.x

 

Cause: 

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.

 

Resolution: 

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.
