    Hello,

    When creating a new job in 11.1.7 and setting default step options, I realised that the reports included in the job are not picking up the default steps. Even when clicking on reset to default nothing happens. Is anyone experiencing the same issue ?

    I have to set up 40 reports within a job and this is a problem. It was working fine in 11.1.5. The default delivery settings are not working, report output is picked up from default.

    Hi Mauro,
    Is this just specific to the email settings (like To: address and Attach Output) or are you seeing it with other settings as well?
    Thanks,
    Trevor

    Yes, the default settings in the job for the email are not working on 11.1.7.  In the previous version (11.1.5), I was able to set the cc and body message for the JOB. Extremely disappointing, and now I am starting to understand all the criticism to IBM about product bugs. In a new release, they broke functionality that was working fine in the previous version.

    Hi Mauro,
    I have reproduced the issue and logged it for development to fix. I will do what I can to push this internally. If you log a case to have this escalated you can give my name to the support analyst. I will give them the required information.
    Cheers,
    Trevor

    Hi Mauro,

    A fix for this issue did not make it in the most recently released fix pack but is targeted for the next fixpack. We don't have an ETA for the next fixpack but I will relay any timeline I can for this in the new year when it is available.

    I also looked back at the issue and see that the Default Job Steps do apply to the reports if you use the Classic UI.

    I've tried with the Classic UI workaround and I couldn't save the changes. The option is greyed out.

    I have tried this out a couple different ways, new Jobs and existing, but I don't see any issue. Can you give me a screenshot where you are seeing this? Or any more info?

    I trust you are not seeing an issue due to permissions.
