Symptoms

On : 8.55 version, PeopleCode GetFile does not create a file managed by Report Repository

If an app engine running on the process scheduler creates a file using GetFile it used to appear in "View Log/Output" in the process monitor or report repository. 
The below creates a file but this file is found under %PS_FILEDIR% not View Log/Output

&Log = GetFile("ZZ_CA_RSTMT.Implemnt.Milestne.txt", "W");

PeopleBooks says:

"Any file opened for writing (using a call to the GetFile function or the File class Open method) by a PeopleCode program that runs in the Process Scheduler is automatically managed by the Report Repository."
