Pinned topic How exchange parameters between mainframe jobs

‏2004-02-20T04:54:40Z |
I would like how comunicate two mainframe jobs using parameters.
For example when you want to send foreign key value to read in source data where this is a key value.
What stages I need?
Could you give an example, please?

    Hi Meri,

    For comunicate two mainframe jobs using parameters you must use the option Edit > Job Properties > Parameters.
    Example:
    Your first job need write all parameters into a Flat File.
    After that, in your second job, you need to input in a option above a File Name writed, Cobol DD name and all the parameters (parameter name, SQL type, length ...).
    Your second job, during the execution will read a Flat File writed to capture the parameters first.
    You can use all the parameters into Transformer stage.
