Error description

  • IBM Developer for z/OS
    
    If the HTTPS parameters are commented out on the config file
    eqaprof.env, used by the Debug Profile Service started task,
    this could cause problems when the z/OS Debugger Profiles view
    tries to connect to the system.
    
    On IDz, if the user is creating a new profile they might see a
    "Problem Occurred" prompt saying:
    Update debug profile API server status has encountered a
    problem.
    
    The IDz workspace error .log file shows:
    !ENTRY org.eclipse.core.jobs 4 2 2021-01-08 17:00:46.020
    !MESSAGE An internal error occurred during: "Update debug
    profile API server status".
    !STACK 0
    java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: ""
    
    The stack trace shows the com.ibm.debug.pdt component.
    
    When trying to activate an existing profile the user might see
    a "API Server Error" prompt saying:
    CRRDG9116E The call to Debug Profile Service:
       HttpDelete profile/dtcn/<userid>?region=<CICS-name>
      failed with the error message:
            CRRDG9111I  <connection-name> is not connected
    

Local fix

  • Uncomment the HTTPS parameters on eqaprof.env, even if you are
    not going to implement the required keystore at this moment.
