Autosys - How to remove conditions

If you are like me starting up with Autosys development and encounter a requirement where you are asked to completely remove all the condition (start condition) from a job, And you are searching through CA documentation and various blogs for quick help, Sadly there isn’t much out there.

Yes, it’s little surprising that such a basic stuff isn’t documented anywhere. Does this mean its very simple and easy that there isn’t much to write or document about it. Probably that’s the reason, because the solution is actually very simple, Atleast the solution that I finally used at my work.

Assume an example job, dev_job_c which is having below job condition :

condition: s(dev_job_a) & s(dev_job_b)

And now we just want this condition to be removed such that dev_job_c runs without waiting for the successful run of dev_job_a and dev_job_b.

This can be achieved using a simple update_job command as below :

update_job: dev_job_c condition:

Yes, we just have to leave blank after condtion and that is all required.
