APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • This APAR introduces new function to WebSphere MQ File Transfer
    Edition v7.0.4.3 to allow the publication of transfer progress
    audit messages after an early transfer failure.
    
    Without this new function a transfer which fails before
    attempting to perform a file transfer would only send a transfer
    completed audit message with the reason for failure. This means
    that the failure to transfer the files within the transfer would
    go unaudited.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users of WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition v7.0.4 and
    WebSphere MQ Managed File Transfer v7.5
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    The design of the transfer auditing did not cater for logging
    the status of items which the agent did not attempt to
    transfer due to an early failure. This means, for example,
    that the failure of the pre-source call could prevent the
    auditing of the failure to transfer the transfer items.
    Instead no information on these transfer items would be logged.
    

Problem conclusion

  • New function has been provided to audit all transfer items, even
    in the case of early transfer failure. To enable this new
    function the following properties must be enabled in the
    wmqfte.properties file:
