Thread: Dummy step reporting failure

  1. #1

    Default Dummy step reporting failure

    I have a job with a simple evaluation. If the variable it is evaluating is 1, it reports success and runs a transformation. If it is zero then I have the error running a dummy step. Problem is that the job metrics reports a failure for that job and I want it to report a success even though the evaluation "failed". There are no errors in the log but the job reports "false" under "finished job entry". Basically the variable is set in a config file and allows the user to decide which transforms to turn on and off.

    Basically it is the simple evaluation step which makes the job fail if it "fails". I just want to use it to decide which step to continue to, without giving a failure message. Version is 7.1, BTW.

    What do you have after the dummy step when the evaluation is false? If you create a hop to the End Success step the job would not finish as failed.
