I have a problem statement here.

I have one job(A job) which is triggered by rexx and it release one file and that file is triggering one another job (job B) the purpose of that B job is to capture the return code of job A and basis of return code of job A.

what problem i am facing?

When I am executing this flow my B job is not able to capture the A job(A job finished adn file is created in A job that triggred B job) from Savers may be bcz it is not available in the savers yet and this flow is executing this B job .


Points to be noted:
1> This is part of automation task.

2>My A job name is dynamic but i hv used some logic and able to capture the name of the job to get captured in My B job.

3>Problem is the log capturing step in my B job is getting executed right before even the A job is available in savers.

I am trying to add wait step in my B job to wait for 60's and so that it can capture the A job logs but my code reviewer is saying I should not do this since it is not a good practice . I have tested this for few test cases and it worked but they are saying your job might take more time you will have a problem in that situation.

An i can't think of any other way here , Can anyone give any suggest or guide me here.

Thanks in advance.

Cross posting to different sections wont speed up anything. It's more likely that you have to find out yourself, or hire an expert.
