Purge request fails



Purge job fails after the fiche production step. Documentation does not provide the JCL for the job.

Error Messages

JCL error - parameter too long

Steps to Reproduce

1. Enter fiche selection online.
2. Run fiche job.
3. Run purge job.

Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is a defect in customer application code/rules. The report runtime parameter is misconfigured.


The runtime parameter can be a number of minutes and/or report job end time (in format hh:mm:ss). If both are provided, they are separated by a '/' character. 
Also, the command to accept the fiche has to be issued online prior to running the purging which would remove the records and not allow a poor fiche run to be corrected.
