    Customer wants to check the status of jobs related to a remote agent-- from
    the agent box. Doing an 'autorep -J ALL', displays all jobs associated to
    the Autosys scheduler. Customer asks- how can they avoid displaying all
    jobs associated to the Autosys scheduler and only display jobs which are
    associated to a particular agent???


    CA Response:
    CA Workload Automation AE (WAAE) cannot use the autorep utility to report on
    Jobs (-J) for a particular instance or machine.

    You can combine the autorep report with multiple value settings like -J or -M,
    on the same command line to get a report of jobs and machines using a 'AND/OR'
    i.e. >autorep -J box* AND -M <machinename>                                      

    Autorep output would produce a report, in order, for all box* jobs first and
    machine status information second. Not an aggregate of the 2 value settings!


    Information on enhancement request:

    1. Detail of Enhancement: (Please provide a step by step description

       of what you would like the feature to do. Please include descriptions

       of the specific pages or feature area you want enhanced along with

       screenshots. This will help our Product Management team better

       understand your enhancement. )

    -- When we try to display a list of jobs (autorep -J ALL) on a remote agent, currently it displays list of all the jobs which are associated to the scheduler (Autosys machine). Is there a way we can display only the list of jobs which belong to the remote agent when we run autorep -J ALL on the remote agent machine?


    2. Use Case: 21805938 to provide information regarding the problem.


    3. How you think the product works now: (Please provide a description of

       how you think the product works now). This will help us to determine

       if your experience is due to a design issue <or> if you may be

       be encountering a bug in the product.

    --I don't think it is a bug but it is kind of a good to have functionality, which will allow users/customers to filter the list of jobs based off of a remote agent


    4. What is the business impact to your implementation: (Please provide a

       brief description of your specific business reason for wanting this

       enhancement. This will help our Product Management team understand how

       it impacts you.)

    --Currently we have 4 to 5 agents pointing to a scheduler, when we run the autorep command on the remote agent, it displays all the jobs which are associated to the scheduler. It is kind of difficult for us to determine the list of jobs which belong to the remote agent from the entire displayed jobs list


    5. What value do you believe this enhancement adds to the market value of

       the product: (Please provide your view on how this enhancement would

       add value to the existing product on an overall market level).

    --I am 100% sure it helps customers to find the list of jobs associated to the remote agent very easily. It will make user's life very easy when looking for set of jobs on a remote agent
