Error description

  • This is a change of behavior when switching between JMS and WEB
    Agents which breaks existing customer scripts.
    Urban Code WEB agents are not resolving the agent resource
    working directory without / at the end of path
    
    Example1:
    
    In JMS Agents ${p:resource/work.dir} results in
    /opt/urbancode/ibm-ucdagent/var/work/
    But In WEB Agents ${p:resource/work.dir} results in
    /opt/urbancode/ibm-ucdagent/var/work
    
    Example2:
    In JMS , the path resolves to ${p:resource/work.dir}snippets ->
    /opt/urbancode/ibm-ucdagent/var/work/snippets/
    In WEB agents the path resolves to
    ${p:resource/work.dir}snippetsâ ‚->
    /opt/urbancode/ibm-ucdagent/var/work/snippets
    
    In case of WEB Agents / is missing at the end of path.
    

Local fix

  • Edit existing scripts
