You use JCL to transfer events between ESP systems. If a line exceeds 72 character limits, ESP puts the dash as the 73rd character and the transfer process fails.
Here is an example of Event definition with lines over 72 chars:
EVENT ID(CYBER.MYEVENT) SYSTEM(-)
REPLACEINVOKE 'CYBER.PROCLIB(EVENT1)'WOBTRIG FILE_TRIGGER Agent(MYAGENT) -
CREATE NoChange(1) State(Working)ENDDEF
Component: WORKLOAD AUTOMATION ESP
Historically, positions 73 - 80 were used to store user IDs, numbers, etc., so ESP ignores any text beyond this position. This applies only for datasets which are allocated with FB record format and length of 80 characters.
To prevent this behavior, allocate the dataset for event export with a different length such as 133.
Sample JCL to export events to a data set:
//ESPJLOAD JOB ,ESPJLOAD,MSGLEVEL=(1,1),MSGCLASS=X,REGION=4M
//*** EVENT DOWNLOAD PROCESS FROM ONE LPAR
//LOADEVNT EXEC PGM=ESP,PARM='SUBSYS(ESPx)',COND=(0,NE)
//STEPLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=your.ESP.load.library
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD *
LIST LEVEL(cyber.myevent) ALL PRINT('hlq.lrecl133.dataset.name')
