Integrity Case Results

The following screen is accessed using option ‘21’ from the Work With Integrity Cases display or by using the WRKINTRUN command (see the System chapter).

Warn This column indicates whether or not any warning messages have been generated for the run. Any messages that were displayed on the object pre-check but did not prevent the execution of the Integrity Case are logged here. Also, if the Integrity Case run is at an ‘Abnormal’ status this means that an unrecoverable error has occurred and this error will also be logged as a warning message.

Clr This indicates whether low level details of the Integrity Case run have been cleared with option ‘7’. See the notes below for option ‘7’ – Clear/Delete.


1 – Warnings Display any warning messages that have been generated for this run.

4 – Cancel This option will cancel an active batch job or a queued batch job. Using 4 will end that job, and update the status of the run. If used on an active interactive job it will have no effect and the job will continue. However, if the interactive job has been ended by a command such as ENDJOB *IMMED, the run will still show as active until this option is used to update the status to cancelled.

5 – Details Display details of the Integrity Case run, see the section below for more information.

6 – Report Create a report for the results set selected. A window is displayed which enables the reporting options to be selected prior to the report being created.

7 – Clear/Delete A window is displayed where the user can choose to either delete or clear the runs that have been selected with option ‘7’. The ‘Delete’ option will delete permanently all references to the run. The ‘Clear’ option will delete the detailed information about the objects included in the run, leaving a reduced record that the run took place.

8 – Job This displays the OS/400 job information, either for an active batch job (a submitted Integrity Case run), or an active interactive job which started the run. Once the job has terminated, this option is no longer allowed.

9 – Notes Use option 9 to access the Notes Editor and to enter or amend text notes about the run. For more information on using the Notes Editor, refer to the separate Chapter in this document.
