Error description

  • On IDz 14.2.1, the user can create a Debug Configuration, by
    going to Run > Debug Configurations, and selecting MVS Batch
    Application on the left side to create a new configuration.
    
    On the initial JCL Options tab for the new configuration,
    if the user selects "Use JCL Generation preferences instead
    of a property group", and updates the Base JCL field with an
    existing data set and member containing JCL, a list of the
    steps is presented and at least one step should be selected.
    
    Then on the Remote Profile tab, after adding the load modules
    and/or programs to debug, if the user sets the Step option
    field to "Inherit from JCL Options" and under Remote Profile
    Activation sets the Action to "Synchronize and Enable", the
    &USERID.DLAYDBG.EQAUOPTS data set will be updated to include
    the required tags. However the <STN> tag will receive and
    invalid step number and a semicolon separating it from the
    step name, for example:
    <STN>2;BAS1
    
    If the user starts the debug session by clicking the Debug
    button, a job will be submitted but the debug session will
    not start. The job output will contain the following message:
    + EQAU999I BATCH STEP NAME DOES NOT MATCH <STN> TAG IN THE
    PROFILE DATA SET
    

Local fix

  • Edit your &USERID.DLAYDBG.EQAUOPTS data set and remove the
    step number and semicolon from the <STN> tag. For example:
    <STN>2;BAS1
    Would be updated to only have the step name:
    <STN>BAS1
    
    Another workaround is to specify the step explicitly on the
    Remote Profile tab, by changing the Step option field to
    "Specify custom step", and filling the Step field next to it.

    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    * Users who used Debug Configurations to launch program in     *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * When setting delay debug information via Debug               *
    * Configurations, step name set is appended with the step      *
    * number and semicolon, causing delay debug unable to match    *
    * the correct step name.                                       *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *

Problem conclusion

  • The value of step name is now correctly set in debug delay
    dataset.
