Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z 8.5.1 - RDz - CARMA Endevor
    Enhanced Edit of production element copies all versions to
    new/entry environment.  When CARMA Enhanced Edit (RDz
    implementation of Endevor Fast/quick edit) is used against
    production element, CARMA Endevor RAM will issue TRANSFER
    ELEMENT Endevor API call (starting in RDz 8.5.1.1) to copy prod
    element to user specified location/environment.  When production
    element has multiple versions, all versions are copied to
    environment where element is being edited.  In most, if not all
    cases, user expects only the latest version of prod element to
    be copied.
    
    Local Fix:
    This problem is related to the way the TRANSFER ELEMENT Endevor
    API is being done.  Starting in RDz 8.5.1.4 (host maintenance),
    a CARMA server configuration option is provided that will change
    this TRANSFER ELEMENT call to a RETRIEVE ELEMENT, followed by a
    ADD ELEMENT API call, to get element from prod to test/entry
    environment.  Customers experiencing this problem should
    configure CARMA to use this Retrieve-Add option (in CRACFG file
    allocated by CARMA Server, un-comment the ENTRY-STAGE-COPY-MODE
    = RETRIEVE-ADD statement) to resolve this problem until APAR is
    available.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: 01.RDz CARMA Endevor Enhanced Edit of   *
    *                         production element copies all        *

    *                         This problem is because the RDz      *
    *                         CARMA Endevor RAM is using the       *
    *                         "Move with history" option when      *
    *                         invoking the CA Endevor Transfer     *
    *                         Element API.                         *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    01.The RDz Endevor RAM is specifying "Y" in the "Move with
       history" option when invoking the CA Endevor Transfer
       Element API. This causes all versions to also be transfered
       to the target stage.
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.The RDz Endevor RAM needs to specify "N" for the "Move with
       history" option of the CA Endevor Transfer Element API.
