HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Moving to daylight saving time off

Moving to daylight saving time (DST) off, the clock time is set to one hour earlier with respect to the DST time. To maintain consistency with production planning criteria, HCL Workload Automation ensures that the job stream instances planned to run during the hour before the time shift backward are run only one time. Because the time conversion is applied when generating or extending the production plan, the date and time to run assigned to jobs and job streams in the plan is already converted into the corresponding date and time with DST off.

If a job stream or a job run on a timezone where the DST time turns off, that is the clock is put one hour back, and if you define a time dependency for such job streams or jobs in relation to another timezone, it might happen that this time dependency occurs during the second, repeated time interval. In this case the time dependency would be resolved during the first time interval.

HCL Workload Automation recognizes that the time dependency occurs on the second, repeated time interval and resolves it accordingly.
