Setting an autosave interval

When the Autosave preference is enabled, JCL Editor periodically saves a local backup copy of your edit session.

If your edit session ends abnormally, due for instance to an operating system or workbench failure, JCL Editor gives you an opportunity to recover your changes the next time you open the file.
  1. Select Window (on Windows) or IBM Developer for z Systems (on macOS) > Preferences > JCL > Editor > Autosave.
  2. Click the Autosave check box.
  3. In Minutes between saves, type the interval between saves.
