Error description

  • batchManager help listJobs
    
    --createTime=[createTime]
    The create time filter applied to the job instance records.
    For example:
    --createTime=2015-09-10:2015-09-27 returns records between
    2015-09-10 and 2015-09-27.
    --createTime=">3d" returns records greater than or equal to
    3 days ago UTC.
    --createTime="<3d" returns records less than or equal to 3
    days ago UTC.
    --createTime=2015-09-15 returns all records on 2015-09-15.
    If --page and --pageSize not specified, a default of 50 max
    
    records are returned.  Whenever specifiying createTime=>Xd
    or createTime<Xd the date will be calculated on the
    dispatcher
    server in UTC time.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Help text for the BatchManager listJobs *
    *                      command is unclear                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The help text for batchManager --listJobs includes the following
    lines:
    
    --createTime=">3d" returns records greater than or equal to
    3 days ago UTC.
    --createTime="<3d" returns records less than or equal to 3
    days ago UTC.
    
    In this context, it is not clear what "greater than/less than or
    equal to 3 days ago" means when referencing the job creation
    time. Users have expressed confusion at this wording and often
    the actual results returned by the search do not match their
    expectations.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The confusing help text has been updated to be more clear about
    what these filters do:
    
    --createTime=">3d" returns records that were created 3 days ago
    UTC or
      later (the creation date is greater than or equal to the date
    3 days ago).
    --createTime="<3d" returns records that were created 3 days ago
    UTC or
      earlier (the creation date is less than or equal to the date 3
    days ago).
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 17.0.0.4.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
