Known Affected Releases

6.1.0 6.2.0

Description (partial)

Symptom:
There was a change in the wording for the message asking to override all successor jobs in 6.X from 5.3.1 that is much less cautionary when observed in context. It seems like a small difference, but the impact this wording can have on a schedule means that a user can cause many downstream jobs to run that they did not desire.

Conditions:
6.x

Recreate:
1.) Make two jobs, job 2 is dependent on job 1. Job 1 has a dependency that will cause it to never run, to make this easier
2.) Insert both into the schedule
3.) Disable Job1 in job def or remove job 1 from today's schedule (or you could also modify its calendar and apply the change to today, anything that could cause the job to be removed from today's jobs)
4.) A message will pop up:

TES 6.x
Other jobs depend on **job name**. Are you sure you want to disable this job and remove it as a dependency? [yes/no]

and 5.3.1 a much clearer message was displayed:

There are jobs that depend on job **job name**. Override job dependency **job name** on unrun job occurrences?

Both followed by "are you sure you want to disabled[yes/no]"
