The naming of the function 'Verify connection to Service Manager' is misleading in AWI


Article ID: 85051


Updated On:


CA Automic Workload Automation - Automation Engine


Error Message :

The name of the function, Verify connection to Service Manager, in the context menu in the Automic Web Interface (AWI) is misleading.

The word 'verify' does not imply that any changes will be made but only a simple check is done. However, this function does make changes.

The function should be renamed to clearly indicate that it will make changes, and can result in the loss of data if the SMGR_PORT_RANGE is not configured to include the port number of the service manager.



Cause type:
Root Cause: The naming of function "Verify" is misleading. The naming has been changed to "Update Service Manager Link".


OS Version: N/A


Update to a fix version listed below or a newer version if available.

The name in the context menu has been renamed to Update Service Manager Link which now implies that an update and therefore a change is done.

Fix Status: Released

Fix Version(s):
Component(s): Automic Web Interface

Automic Web Interface 12.0.1 - Available
