Element Registration

Element Registration is an optional feature of
CA Endevor
that enables your
CA Endevor
administrator to restrict the use of duplicate element names at the Subsystem level across all Systems or within a specific System. In addition, duplicate element names can be restricted at the Processor Group level across all Systems or within a specific System.

administrator to restrict the use of duplicate element names at the Subsystem level across all Systems or within a specific System. In addition, duplicate element names can be restricted at the Processor Group level across all Systems or within a specific System.
SubSystem Level Restriction on Duplicate Element Names
The use of duplicate element names at the Subsystem level can be restricted on a System-by-System basis or across all Systems.
  • Across All Systems at SubSystem Level -
    When enabled, this option restricts the use of the same element name no matter its Type across all Systems. Elements with the same element-name (no matter the Type) can only exist if one maps to the other.
    A conflict is found when an attempt is made to add or create an element and another element with the same name exists in another unmapped System/Subsystem. The severity level of this option can be set as follows for conflict situations:
    • E - The action is terminated and a message is issued.
    • C - The action adds or creates the duplicate element, after displaying a caution that gives you the option to terminate the action.
    • W - The action adds or creates the duplicate element, after displaying a warning that gives you the option to terminate the action.
    This option overrules any element registration settings for a specific System set at the System definition level. However, this option does
    not
    overrule any restrictions at the Processor Group level.
    To have effect, this option must be set by the
    CA Endevor
    administrator in ENCOPTBL using the option REGISTER_ACROSS_SYSTEMS. By default, this option is turned off.
  • Within a Specific System at the SubSystem Level -
    Restricts duplicate element names across Subsystems within a System.
    A conflict is found when an attempt is made to add or create an element and another element with the same name exists within another Subsystem under the same System. The severity level of this option can be set as follows for conflict situations.
    • E (Error) - The action is terminated and an error message is issued.
    • C (Caution) - The action adds or creates the duplicate element, after displaying a caution that gives you the option to terminate the action.
    • W (Warning) - The action adds or creates the duplicate element, after displaying a warning that gives you the option to terminate the action.
    To have effect, this option must be set by the
    CA Endevor
    administrator in the System definition using the parameters Duplicate Element Name Check and Message Severity Lvl. By default, this option is turned off. The System Definition panel displays the parameter values in the Duplicate Element Name Check and Msg Severity Lvl fields.
Processor Group Level Restriction on Duplicate Element Names
The use of duplicate element names at the Processor Group level can be restricted on a System-by-System basis or across all Systems.
  • Across All Systems at the Processor Group Level -
    When enabled, this option restricts duplicate element names from existing, even when the element is a different Type, if the Processor output Type is the same within the same System or another System.
    A conflict occurs if an attempt is made to add or create an element and an element with the same name and Processor output Type exists in the same System or another System, even if the elements are of different Types.
    The severity level of this option can be set as follows for conflict situations:
    • E - The action is terminated and a message is issued.
    • C - The action adds or creates the duplicate element, after displaying a caution that gives you the option to terminate the action.
    • W - The action adds or creates the duplicate element, after displaying a warning that gives you the option to terminate the action.
    This option overrules any element registration settings for a specific System set at the System definition level. However, this option does
    not
    overrule any restrictions at the Processor Group level.
    To have effect, this option must be set by the
    CA Endevor
    administrator in ENCOPTBL using the option ELM_REG_CHK_OUTPTYPE_ACROSS_SYSTEMS. By default, this option is turned off.
  • Within a Specific System at the Processor Group Level -
    When enabled, this option restricts duplicate element names from existing, even when the element is a different Type, if the Processor output Type is the same within the same System.
    A conflict occurs if an attempt is made to add or create an element and an element with the same name and Processor output Type exists in the same System, even if the elements are of different Types. The severity level of this option can be set as follows for conflict situations.
    • E (Error) - The action is terminated and an error message is issued.
    • C (Caution) - The action adds or creates the duplicate element, after displaying a caution that gives you the option to terminate the action.
    • W (Warning) - The action adds or creates the duplicate element, after displaying a warning that gives you the option to terminate the action.
    To have effect, this option must be set by the
    CA Endevor
    administrator in the System definition using the parameters Duplicate Proc O/P Type Check and Message Severity Lvl. By default, this option is turned off. The System Definition panel displays the parameter values in the Duplicate Proc O/P Type Check and Msg Severity Lvl fields.
