  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When trying to Retrieve several elements with a single command,
    the pop-up displayed is incorrect (element name incorrect,
    through element missing, and version/level filled as it should
    not).
    This fix will allow the customer to perform the following steps:
    
    1) Select the initial element to retrieve
    2) On the Retrieve Element panel, the end user wll manually
    clear the level ? version fields (the fix will remove their
    current read only attribute)
    3) The end user can manually enter the 'Through element name'
    
    Note that the customer will not have the ability to select
    multiple elements and have the 'Through element name'
    automatically defined.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Parameters are not automatically filled in from the available
    information for the CA Endevor SCM RAM.  Additionally,
    parameters filled in for the CA Endevore Packages RAM can be
    replaced by previously entered values.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Endevor client code is fixed to properly gather default
    parameter values to present to the user when using the CA
    Endevor SCM RAM.  If the user wishes to use the through field
    for an action, the user should only select the starting element
    and then fill the through field to instruct Endevor to batch the
    work.Additionally, the two check boxes on the bottom of the
    custom parameter dialog have been fixed so the state of the
    check boxes is remembered.  These boxes are "Remember the
    entered values for later" and "Continue to prompt me for the
    remaining members on this task"For the CA Endevor Packages RAM,
    the user will have to modify the CARMA preferences
    (Windows->Preferences...; Team->CARMA) and move "Property
    Values" to the top of the Custom Parameter Search Order list in
    order to provide the same fix.  This preference can be
    distributed through the Push To Client system.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V8.0.3.2 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
