Symptoms

Users create an ESS Job in the application under Finance Domain which runs a host script (shell script). 

Users will submit a shell script through ESS Job as part of an outbound interface. This outbound interface has to call a Connect Direct script to transfer the file generated in Fusion Applications server to an external mainframe terminal. 

Developers are following the instructions in "How to Create and Implement ESS Host Script Scheduled Job? (Doc ID 1440163.1)" .  

The  job results in an error status when run.
