Problem

I would like to emulate an AutoSys® max_exit_success. For example, a max_exit_success=10 means that

  • 0 signals success, 
  • > 10 signals failure and 
  • exit codes between 1 and 9 as a warning.

For a job chain this would mean:

  • 0 : next_state with exit 0
  • 1-9 : next_state with a real exit
  • >10 : error_state with a real exit

I tried to change the error_state with a next_state but this did not work. Could you give me a hint?

Solution

You can find instructions about handling exit codes on our How to configure the handling of exit codes by jobs page.

Here is another example:

function spooler_task_after() {
   
    var rc = spooler_task.exit_code;
    var next_state = spooler_task.order().job_chain_node().next_state();
    spooler_log.info( "INFO: Job has ended with exit code " + rc );
    switch( rc ) {
        case  0 :
                break;
        case  1 :
                spooler_log.error("suspend order");
                spooler_task.order().set_suspended( true );
                break;
        case  5 :
                // the job is required to have a setback configuration
                spooler_log.error("setback order");
                spooler_task.order.setback();
                break;
        case 10 :
                spooler_log.warn("INFO: Please check results and content, REPORT MAY BE AFFECTED");
                spooler_log.info("order state changed to " + next_state);
                spooler_task.order.state = next_state;
                break;
        case 15 :
                spooler_log.warn("INFO: Please check results and content. THERE ARE REJECTS");
                spooler_log.info("order state changed to " + next_state);
                spooler_task.order.set_state( next_state );
                break;      
        default :
                spooler_log.info("order state changed to " + next_state);
                spooler_task.order.set_state( next_state );
                break;
    }
}

A possible solution in PerlScript could be:

if ($spooler_task->params->var("max_exit_success")>0) {
        my $max_exit = $spooler_task->params->var("max_exit_success");
        $spooler_log->info( "    Max exit success :  $max_exit" );
        if ($spooler_task->exit_code == 0) {
            $spooler_log->info( "--> SUCCESS ");
        }
        elsif ($spooler_task->exit_code > $max_exit) {
            $spooler_log->info( "--> ERROR ");
            $spooler_log->info( "Error state :  ".$chain_node->error_state );
        }
        else {
            $spooler_log->warn( "--> WARNING ");
            $spooler_log->info( "Next state :  ".$chain_node->next_state );
            $order->LetProperty( 'state', $chain_node->next_state  );
        }
        $order->LetProperty( 'state_text', '=== Exit code '.$spooler_task->exit_code.' ==='  );
}
