Process or Command Options

After you create a statement, you set Process options, including when the Process is submitted, how the Process is handled in the TCQ, if a user is notified when a task is complete, who has access to the Process, and any defining comments associated with it.

You can use one or more of the following options in a Process or command:
  • Control functions identify how tasks are managed and how resources are allocated by defining default options once. Then these values are used as the default values for each new command or Process you define.
  • Security options identify user IDs and passwords needed to access the SNODE and the PNODE.
  • Variable values assign values to all symbolic variables before execution. The values are then substituted during execution whenever the symbolic variable is encountered.
  • Accounting data as a free-form, user-defined field sets up accounting and tracking information about Process execution and data transfers. You can track data transfers by cost centers, department numbers, satellite locations, or any other type of code or identification that would benefit the management of data tracking.
  • Comments about the statement explain the context of the statement. When you view a Process in text format, the comments appear before the associated statement.
