Batch - Maximum Error Parameter Is Always Treated As A Required Field Even If It Is Not. (Doc ID 605536.1)

Last updated on MARCH 04, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Utilities Framework - Version 2.1.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The Maximum Error parameter (for a batch program) is always treated as a required field even if it is
optional. This causes the batch program to raise an error when the Maximum Error parameter does
not have a value and halts the current run.

Note: This error occurs when executing the batch using the interactive batch run method. However,
this error is not raised when running the batch program through the batch submission page.

Number: 101
Text: Message Parameter Text field missing
Description: A mandatory field has been left blank. Please enter a value and retry your request.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Run a batch program using the interactive batch run (calling the PRM file).
2. Make sure that the PRM file has a MAX_ERROR parameter and enter a null / blank value.
3. Ensure Batch Control Parameter from the Batch Control Page has the Maximum Error parameter set to optional.
4. Run the Batch Program by calling the splbatch.cmd from the console.
