Handling file status
A Flexible and Convenient Interface
•Through batch and user interface.
•Types of user profiles:
-Admin: Defining parameters, and overall variables.
-Exploit: Defining extraction criteria/rules.
-Tracking: Accessing file tracking information and logs.
Multi-criteria file tracking
•By identifier/load or extraction number, job name, jobid, date, status,...
Blocking an identifier (extraction)
•Unique, or by association (ex: block all extraction identifiers using a load identifier).
Handling of the sink file status
• Unitary, by extraction ID or load ID.
• Restoration,suspension, deletion.
•Creation of specific requests (SELECT) by the administrator and setting description parameters.
•Execution by the users (result presented in the user interface, and exportable in csv).
•Log mapping all actions performed within the sink.
•Specific log for all error handling.
A job loading a file in the sink does not need to know its consumer. Similarly, adding a consumer does not require any alteration of the issuer.
The consumer's scheduling may be completely independent from the creator's scheduling
An identifier can be best described as "optional"; the absence of files will not cause a consumer error: the output file will be created empty. However a "mandatory" identifier will cause a consumer interruption (error) if no deposit has been made.
Loading a file can generate an event, which can cover multiple identifiers. For example: the release of an application, or an exterior transfer when a set of identifiers have received a file.
Anticipates inconsistencies through format checking with z/Os
Certifies that the deposited file is not identical to a previously deposited file
Manages the conservation of files according to their defined contained period. Allows files to be restored for an additional extraction.
Ensures better tracking by writing every action and event in a log
eFILE Inter-application file sink
Differentiate your functional dependencies from your scheduling dependencies
Manage your file with greater ease
eFILE, as a file sink, allows an asynchronous file management exchange between batch processes.
File authors and users are now enabled to benefit of a functional link to the file content without getting hindered by technical dependancies or scheduling constraints
A creator can load its files to an identifier within the sink, to be later extracted by one or more readers.
When several files are loaded under the same identifier, they can be merged during extraction.
