Result tab conversion to Postcondition tab adds ENDED_SKIPPED clause
Article ID: 84779
CA Automic Workload Automation - Automation Engine
Error Message : N/A
In Version 9 the Result tab of a workflow tasks has been replaced by the Postconditions tab. When you load a Transport Case, the objects are automatically converted to the new version.
When the Result tab is converted to a Postcondition tab, the Result tab settings are to execute a script for a status other than ENDED_OK. After the import to a newer version the Postcondition has one extra condition which checks to see if the status is ENDED_SKIPPED() else.
The intended behavior in V8 is as follows: Check to see if the staus of the Task is ENDED_OK else execute a script (this includes the status ENDED_SKIPPED).
As of V9 there is no option available in the Postcondition tab to take an action on an ENDED_SKIPPED status because the Postcondition is not executed.
Cause type: Defect Root Cause: Change of workflow behavior from V8 to V9 - See Release Notes for Version 9.00A on docs.automic.com. The DB Load utility added an unnecessary ENDED_SKIPPED clause to the postconditions of a workflow task.
