Retrieving group name from

Comments and questions related to the Enterprise Control Language

Hello All,

The current topology of our THOR cluster on HPCC is as follows:-
cluster - thordev01
queue - thorXX_dev01
queue - thorXX_dev02

When i execute the code ";" on ECL IDE, I get an error
"Error: System error: -1: getGroupName(): ambiguous groups thorXX_dev01, thorXX_dev02".

Is there a way to get a single queue / group name in such a scenario? ELSE
Can you help with some ECL code to get a single queue / group name?

I need this queue name / group name for file spraying.

Thanks and regards,
Akhilesh Badhri.

If you have the WUID, something of the form W20190222-134355

There is a SOAP interface, see URL

Code: Select all
http://<ESP IP:port>/WsWorkunits/WUInfo

Supply the WUID in the structure:
Code: Select all

And the SOAP response is in XML tag
Code: Select all

Note if you only want the 'cluster' information, set all the request 'Include' tags to 0

Note there is a shed load of other interfaces just see the list in:

Code: Select all
http://<ESP IP:port>/WsWorkunits

I am getting a similar error when I try to write a file to both thor components using
Code: Select all
Output(somedataset,,'~path::to;;file',CLUSTER( 'mythor','mythor_2' ))

Assuming the semi-colons in your filename are just a posting typo, then I suggest you submit a JIRA bug report for the CLUSTER option error you're getting.
