Issue/Introduction

Error Message :
N/A

The  z/OS Agent does not delete temporary files after a successful transfer of report files to the Automation Engine (AE).

Affected files are UC_EX_PATH_TEMP=UC4.TEMP or UC_EX_PATH_JOBREPORT=UC4.TEMP.  Both parameters are set in the Agent configuration file.

The global behavior may depend on the reports settings in the job parameter

The problem occurs if the  “Database” is checked at “Job Report”, only in the Job settings.

In cases where “Generate on error only” is also checked, it will work.  The files are deleted.
