Activates and deactivates a user event.
|IndByte||BYTE||Indicator bits that specify which fields to treat as NULL if you are using indicator mode.
Each bit in the byte corresponds to one field in the input data.
If data is supplied for that field, set the bit to zero.
If the data for that field is NULL (that is, there is no data supplied for that field), set the bit to 1.
The IndByte field is only required if the CLIv2 request is submitted in indicator mode.
|MONITOR software version ID. This can be version 6 or later.
For a general explanation of monitor version choices, see MONITOR VERSION.
|Type of request specified:
|Event Name||VARCHAR (30)||The name of the user event. The event name is a maximum of 30 characters and must be padded with blanks. It is also case sensitive.|
|Time, in minutes, that this user event remains active. This field is valid for active requests only.
A value of zero means the event is true.
The evaluation of all events, including user events, is based on the System Event Timer defined in the Teradata Dynamic Workload Designer portlet. If the Duration value is not a multiple of the System Event timer, it is rounded to the next System Event timer value.
To use this request, you must have the ABORTSESSION and MONSESSION privileges as part of your default role or both privileges must be granted directly to you.

User Events are defined externally only by the name and the attribute of being either active or inactive. User Events also have an optional duration time that determines the length of time the Activate event persists. The event times out at the end of the duration time unless it is de-activated or re-activated. A Duration value of zero indicates the Activate (a Request Type value of 1) is persistent and lasts until explicitly made inactive by another User Event call. User Events persist across a TPA restart or system failure.
User Event names are global, or system wide and, therefore, you must make sure that no conflicting usages of User Event Control request calls occur.
CLIv2 Response Parcels
The following table lists information about the parcels for the USER EVENT CONTROL request.
|Parcel Sequence||Flavor||Field Length||Comments and Key Parcel Body Fields|
|Success||8||18 to 273||StatementNo=1
ActivityCount = 1
ActivityType = PCLUSEREVENTCONTROLSTMT (169)
|DataInfo||71||6 to 64100||Optional: this parcel is present if request was IndicData parcel.|
||Depending on the request (Data or IndicData) data is returned in record or indicator mode. This is the only record returned.|
|EndStatement||11||6||StatementNo = 2-byte integer|
For an example of how the PM/API request, built in Java, appears when sent to the database server, see Teradata JDBC Driver Reference, available at https://teradata-docs.s3.amazonaws.com/doc/connectivity/jdbc/reference/current/frameset.html .
The response to the USER EVENT CONTROL request results in a single Record parcel containing the result of the request.
|Field/Column Name||Data Type||Description|
|User-Defined Event Status||INTEGER
|Current status of the user-defined event:
|Previous User-Defined Event Status||INTEGER
|Previous status of the user-defined event:
The USER EVENT CONTROL request can be used to activate or inactivate a single, specific User Event.
The response indicates if the operation was successful. For successful operations, the result (Previous User-Defined Event Status) shows the previous value of this User Event. This allows the user to know if the User Event was previously active or not. For example, a successful operation, can return any of the following results:
|1,0||the current User Event is Active and it was previously Inactive.|
|1,0||the current User Event is Inactive and it was previously Active.|
|1,2||the current User Event is Active and it was previously not defined.|
