Article ID: 87831


Updated On:


CA Automic Workload Automation - Automation Engine


Error Message :

The Command :REGISTER_VARIABLE will fail if the Agent it is processed on is on a lower Automation Engine (AE) version than 11.2, it will work without problems on an agent 11.2 (or probably higher) but the command is ignored if the Agent is on a lower Version.

There is no error message displayed, but the command is not processed.

It is not described in the Documentation, as a pre-information it is described as known error.


Cause type:
By design
Root Cause: The behavior itself is by design, older Agents do not have the function :REGISTER_VARIABLE to handle this command, but it is not described in documentation.
