Agent's definition totransfer Session logs only on failure for all Informatica WorkFlow Jobs ratherthan


making that determinationin each Informatica WorkFlow Job's definition.


Sessionor Task Job types can now run Informatica Worklets, and WorkFlow Job types cannow start from


Worklets and Tasks withinNon-Reusable Worklets.


Changein Behavior: Using Object Variables Instead of PUT_ATT Commands for RapidAutomation Field


Replacementsin Operations Manager v8.00 and Automic v9


Attributes of Rapid AutomationJobs may change when new versions of the Rapid Automation Agents are


released. When thishappens, :PUT_ATT commands defined in earlier versions of the Agentswill no longer work.


Therefore, in RapidAutomation Jobs, we recommend that you always use object variables for fieldreplacements,


not :PUT_ATT commands.


To change a Job from usinga PUT_ATT command to an object variable, do the following:


1. Removethe PUT_ATT command from the Job's Process or Pre-Process tab.


2. Add avariable to the Variables & Prompts tab of Job.


3. In thefield where you wish to replace a value, enter the object variable in theformat &<Variable># where


<Variable>represents the variable name you entered on the Variables &Prompts tab.
