APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The Time Schedule of a time elapsed UCA contains a 'month' pane,
    a pane
    where you can select 'Every', 'First' or 'Last', a 'weekday'
    pane as
    well as 'hour' and a 'minute' pane.
    If you select 'first' or 'last' together with multiple weedays,
    the BPM
    Scheduler will execute the UCA only on one of these weekdays.
    

Local fix

  • This IFix fixes this behavior in such a way the the UCA will be
    executed
    on each of the selected weekdays. As an example, if you specify
    'first'
    and 'Monday', 'Wednesday' and 'Thursday', the UCA will be
    executed at
    the first Monday, the first Wednesday and the first Thursday of
    the
    month. The same applies to the 'last' selection.
    

Problem summary

  • Problem Description:
    
    The Time Schedule of a time elapsed UCA contains a 'month' pane,
    a pane
    where you can select 'Every', 'First' or 'Last', a 'weekday'
    pane as
    well as 'hour' and a 'minute' pane.
    If you select 'first' or 'last' together with multiple weedays,
    the BPM Scheduler will execute the UCA only on one of these
    weekdays.
    
    Problem Summary:
    The algorith that determines the next time when the UCA is to be
    scheduled does not
    account for the possibility that multiple weekdays can be
    selected in the weeday pane
    

Problem conclusion

  • If the UCA's Time Schedule specifies for example, 'last' and
    'monday','tuesday' and 'thursday',
    then the UCA will be scheduled at the last monday, last tuesday
    and last thursday of the month.
    The same applies to the 'first' specification.
    
    The problem was solved by modifying the algorithm that schedules
    the UCA.
    If a UCA has specified multiple weedays in the weekday pane,
    then the UCA will be executed
    at each of these weekdays.
