Create Job Description (CRTJOBD)

The Create Job Description (CRTJOBD) command creates a job description object that contains a specific set of job-related attributes that can be used by one or more jobs. The attributes determine how each job is run on the system. The same job description can be used by multiple jobs. The values in the job description are usually used as the default values of the corresponding parameters in the Batch Job (BCHJOB) and Submit Job (SBMJOB) commands when their parameters are not specified.

The values in the job description can be overridden by the values specified on the BCHJOB and SBMJOB commands.

Restrictions:

  1. To use this command, you must have:
    • read (*READ) and add (*ADD) authority to the library where the job description is to be created.
    • use (*USE) authority to the user profile specified on the User (USER) parameter.
  2. To create a job description with an accounting code other than *USRPRF, you must have *USE authority to the Change Accounting Code (CHGACGCDE) command.

Initial ASP group (INLASPGRP)

Specifies the initial setting for the auxiliary storage pool (ASP) group name for the initial thread of jobs using this job description. A thread can use the Set ASP Group (SETASPGRP) command to change its library name space. When an ASP group is associated with a thread, all libraries in the independent ASPs in the ASP group are accessible and objects in those libraries can be referenced using regular library-qualified object name syntax. The libraries in the independent ASPs in the specified ASP group plus the libraries in the system ASP (ASP number 1) and basic user ASPs (ASP numbers 2 - 32) form the library name space for the thread.

Restrictions:

  1. The job descriptions QGPL/QDFTJOBD and QGPL/QDFTSVR cannot be changed to specify the name of an ASP group. For these job descriptions, the INLASPGRP must be *NONE.
*NONE
Specifies the initial thread of jobs using this job description will be started with no ASP group. The library name space will not include libraries from any ASP group. Only the libraries in the system ASP and any basic user ASPs will be in the library name space.
name
Specifies the name of the ASP group to be set for the initial thread of jobs using this job description. The ASP group name is the name of the primary ASP device within the ASP group. All libraries from all ASPs in this ASP group will be included in the library name space.

Message logging (LOG)

Specifies the message logging values used to determine the amount and type of information sent to the job log by this job. This parameter has three elements: the message (or logging) level, the message severity, and the level of message text.

Element 1: Level

4
A message logging level of 4 is used for jobs that use this job description.
0-4
Specify the message logging level to be used for the job's messages.
0
No messages are logged.
1
All messages sent to the job's external message queue with a severity greater than or equal to the message logging severity are logged. This includes the indications of job start, job end, and job completion status.
2
The following information is logged:
  • Logging level 1 information
  • Request messages which result in a high-level message with a severity code greater than or equal to the message logging severity. Both the request message and all associated messages are logged.

Note: A high-level message is one that is sent to the program message queue of the program that receives the request message. For example, QCMD is an IBM-supplied request processing program that receives request messages.

3
The following information is logged:
  • Logging level 1 and 2 information
  • All request messages
  • Commands run by a CL program are logged if it is allowed by the logging of CL programs job attribute and the log attribute of the CL program.
4
The following information is logged:
  • All request messages and all messages with a severity greater than or equal to the message logging severity, including trace messages.
  • Commands run by a CL program are logged if it is allowed by the logging of CL programs job attribute and the log attribute of the CL program.

Element 2: Severity

0
A message severity level of 0 is used for jobs that use this job description.
0-99
Specify the message severity level to be used in conjunction with the logging level to determine which error messages are logged in the job log.

Element 3: Text

*NOLIST
If the job ends normally, no job log is produced. If the job ends abnormally (if the job end code is 20 or higher), a job log is produced. The messages that appear in the job log contain both the message text and the message help.
*MSG
Only the message text is written to the job log.
*SECLVL
Both the message text and the message help (cause and recovery) of the error message are written to the job log.

Log CL program commands (LOGCLPGM)

Specifies whether the commands that can be logged and were run in a control language program are logged to the job log by way of the CL program's message queue. This parameter sets the status of the job's logging flag. If *NO is specified, the logging flag status is off and CL commands are not logged. If *YES is specified here and *JOB is specified on the Message logging (LOG) parameter of the Create CL Program (CRTCLPGM) command, all commands in the CL program that can be logged are logged to the job log.

*NO
The commands in a CL program are not logged to the job log.
*YES
The commands in a CL program are logged to the job log.

Job log output (LOGOUTPUT)

Specifies how the job log will be produced when the job completes. This does not affect job logs produced when the message queue is full and the job message queue full action specifies *PRTWRAP. Messages in the job message queue are written to a spooled file, from which the job log can be printed, unless the Control Job Log Output (QMHCTLJL) API was used in the job to specify that the messages in the job log are to be written to a database file.

The job log output value can be changed at any time until the job log has been produced or removed. To change the job log output value for a job, use the Change Job (QWTCHGJB) API or the Change Job (CHGJOB) command.

The job log can be displayed at any time until the job log has been produced or removed. To display the job log, use the Display Job Log (DSPJOBLOG) command.

The job log can be removed when the job has completed and the job log has not yet been produced or removed. To remove the job log, use the Remove Pending Job Log (QWTRMVJL) API or the End Job (ENDJOB) command.

*SYSVAL
The value specified in the system value QLOGOUTPUT is used.
*JOBLOGSVR
The job log will be produced by a job log server. For more information about job log servers, refer to the Start Job Log Server (STRLOGSVR) command.
*JOBEND
The job log will be produced by the job itself. If the job cannot produce its own job log, the job log will be produced by a job log server. For example, a job does not produce its own job log when the system is processing a Power Down System (PWRDWNSYS) command.
*PND
The job log will not be produced. The job log remains pending until removed.

Job message queue maximum size (JOBMSGQMX)

Specifies the maximum size of the job message queue.

*SYSVAL
The value in QJOBMSGQMX (system value) at the time the job is started is used as the maximum size of the job message queue.
2-64
Specify the maximum size, in megabytes, of the job message queue.

Job message queue full action (JOBMSGQFL)

Specifies the action that should be taken when the job message queue is full.

*SYSVAL
The value specified for the QJOBMSGQFL system value is used.
*NOWRAP
The message queue does not wrap when it is full. This action ends the job.
*WRAP
The message queue wraps to the start of the message queue when it is full and starts filling the message queue again.
*PRTWRAP
The message queue wraps the job message queue when it is full and prints the messages that are being overlaid because of wrapping.

CL syntax check (SYNTAX)

Specifies whether requests placed on the job message queue (for jobs using this job description) are checked for syntax as CL commands. When syntax checking is specified, the commands are checked for syntax as they are submitted instead of when the job is run, thus providing an earlier diagnosis of syntax errors. If checking is specified, the message severity that causes a syntax error to end processing of a job is also specified.

*NOCHK
The request data is not checked for syntax as CL commands.
0-99
Specify the lowest message severity that can cause running of a job to end. The request data is checked for syntax as CL commands. If a syntax error occurs that is equal to or greater than the error message severity specified here, the running of the job containing the erroneous command is suppressed.

End severity (ENDSEV)

Specifies the message severity level of escape messages that can cause a batch job to be ended. The batch job is ended when a request in the batch input stream results in an escape message whose severity code is equal to or greater than that specified here being sent to the request processing program QCMD or QCL. This parameter value is compared with the severity of any escape message not monitored that occurs as a result of running a noncompiled CL command in a batch job.

30
A batch input stream request that results in an escape message whose severity is equal to or greater than 30 causes the job to end.
0-99
Specify the message severity of an escape message that results from a request in the batch input stream and that causes the jobs that use this job description to be ended. Because escape messages typically have a maximum severity level of 50, a value of 50 or lower must be specified in order for a job to be ended as a result of an escape message. An unhandled escape message whose severity is equal to or greater than the value specified causes the job to be ended.

Inquiry message reply (INQMSGRPY)

Specifies the way that inquiry messages are answered for jobs that use this job description. You can specify that inquiry messages are to be answered in the usual manner, that a default reply be issued, or that if certain conditions are met, an answer is issued to the inquiry based on those conditions. The conditions met are listed in the system reply list entries of the Add Reply List Entry (ADDRPYLE) command.

*RQD
A reply is required for any predefined inquiry message that is issued by a job that uses this job description.
*DFT
The default message reply is used to answer any predefined inquiry messages issued during running of a job that uses this job description. The default reply is either defined in the message description or is the default system reply.
*SYSRPYL
The system reply list is checked to determine whether an entry matches the message identifier and optional compare value for any inquiry message issued by a job that uses this job description. If a match occurs, the reply value in that reply list entry is used. If no entry exists for that message, a reply is required.

Hold on job queue (HOLD)

Specifies whether jobs using this job description are put on the job queue in the hold condition. A job placed on the job queue in the hold condition is held until it is released by the Release Job (RLSJOB) command, or it is ended, either by the End Job (ENDJOB) command or by the Clear Job Queue (CLRJOBQ) command.

*NO
Jobs that use this job description are not held when they are put on the job queue.
*YES
Jobs that use this job description are held when they are put on the job queue.

Job date (DATE)

Specifies the date that is assigned to the job that uses this job description when the job is started.

*SYSVAL
The value in the QDATE system value at the time the job is started is used as the job date.
date
Specify the job date for the job being started. The format currently specified for the DATFMT job attribute must be used.

Job switches (SWS)

Specifies the initial switch settings for a group of eight job switches used for jobs that use this job description. These switches can be set or tested in a CL program and used to control the flow of the program. The only values that are valid for each single-digit switch are 0 (off) or 1 (on).

00000000
The first setting for the job switches is all zeros for jobs that use this job description.
character-value
Specify any combination (enclosed in apostrophes if necessary) of eight 0's or 1's to change the job switch settings.

Device recovery action (DEVRCYACN)

Specifies the recovery action to take for the job when an I/O error is encountered on the *REQUESTOR device for interactive jobs that use this job description. This attribute is ignored for non-interactive jobs.

*SYSVAL
The value in the system value QDEVRCYACN at the time the job is started is to be used as the device recovery action for this job description.
*MSG
The application program requesting the I/O operation receives an error message indicating the operation has failed.
*DSCMSG
The job is automatically disconnected. Once the job has reconnected, it receives an error message indicating an I/O error has occurred and the device has been recovered. Even though the device has been recovered, the contents of the screen prior to the error must be displayed again.
*DSCENDRQS
The job is automatically disconnected. Once the job has reconnected, the End Request (ENDRQS) command will be issued specifying the processor that made the previous request. If there is no request processor, an error message will be issued.
*ENDJOB
The job is ended with the *IMMED option. A job log is produced for the job.
*ENDJOBNOLIST
The job is ended with the *IMMED option. No job log is produced for the job.

Time slice end pool (TSEPOOL)

Specifies whether interactive jobs are moved to another main storage pool when they reach the end of the time slice. The job is moved back to the pool in which it was originally running when a long wait occurs. This may help minimize the effect on interactive response time of other interactive jobs.

*SYSVAL
The value of the system value QTSEPOOL at the time the job is started is to be used as the time slice end pool action for this job description.
*NONE
The job is not moved when the end of the time slice is reached.
*BASE
The job is moved to the base pool when the end of the time slice is reached.

Authority (AUT)

Specifies the authority you are giving to users who do not have specific authority for the object, who are not on an authorization list, and whose group profile or supplemental group profiles do not have specific authority for the object.

*LIBCRTAUT
The authority to the object is the same as the value specified on the Create authority (CRTAUT) parameter of the library in which the object is being created. If the value specified on the CRTAUT parameter is changed, the new value will not affect any existing objects.
*CHANGE
The user can perform all operations on the object except those limited to the owner or controlled by object existence (*OBJEXIST) and object management (*OBJMGT) authorities. The user can change and perform basic functions on the object. *CHANGE authority provides object operational (*OBJOPR) authority and all data authority. If the object is an authorization list, the user cannot add, change, or remove users.
*ALL
The user can perform all operations except those limited to the owner or controlled by authorization list management (*AUTLMGT) authority. The user can control the object's existence, specify the security for the object, change the object, and perform basic functions on the object. The user also can change ownership of the object.
*USE
The user can perform basic operations on the object, such as displaying its contents. The user cannot change the object. *USE authority provides object operational authority, read authority, and execute authority.
*EXCLUDE
The user cannot access the object.
name
Specify the name of an authorization list to be used for authority to the object. Users included in the authorization list are granted authority to the object as specified in the list. The authorization list must exist when the object is created.

Allow multiple threads (ALWMLTTHD)

Specifies whether or not the job can run with multiple user threads. This attribute does not prevent the operating system from creating system threads in the job. This job attribute is not allowed to be changed once a job starts. This attribute applies to autostart jobs, prestart jobs, batch jobs submitted from job schedule entries and jobs started using the Submit Job (SBMJOB) and Batch Job (BCHJOB) commands. This attribute is ignored when starting all other types of jobs. This attribute should be set to *YES only in job descriptions used exclusively with functions that create multiple user threads.

*NO
The job cannot run with multiple user threads.
*YES
The job can run with multiple user threads.

Spooled file action (SPLFACN)

Specifies whether or not spooled files are accessed through job interfaces after the job ends. Keeping spooled files with jobs allows job commands such as the Work with Submitted Jobs (WRKSBMJOB) command to work with the spooled files even after the job has ended. Detaching spooled files from jobs reduces the use of system resources by allowing job structures to be recycled when the jobs end.

*SYSVAL
The value specified in the system value QSPLFACN is used.
*KEEP
When the job ends, as long as at least one spooled file for the job exists in the system auxiliary storage pool (ASP 1) or in a basic user ASP (ASPs 2-32), the spooled files are kept with the job and the status of the job is updated to indicate that the job has completed. When all remaining spooled files for the job are in independent ASPs (ASPs 33-255), the spooled files will be detached from the job and the job will be removed from the system.
*DETACH
When the job ends, the spooled files are detached from the job and the job is removed from the system.

DDM conversation (DDMCNV)

Specifies whether the connections using distributed data management (DDM) protocols remain active when they are not being used. The connections include APPC conversations, active TCP/IP conversations or OptiConnect connections. The DDM protocols are used in Distributed Relational Database Architecture (DRDA) applications, DDM applications, or DB2 Multisystem applications. For more information on distributed data management, see the IBM i Information Center at http://www.ibm.com/systems/i/infocenter/.

*KEEP
The system keeps DDM conversation connections active when they are no longer being used, except when:
  • The routing step ends on the source system.
  • There is an explicit request that conversations be disconnected, using the Reclaim DDM Conversations (RCLDDMCNV) command or the Reclaim Resources (RCLRSC) command.
  • There is a communications failure or internal failure.
  • A DRDA connection to an application server not running on the System i ends.
*DROP
The system ends a DDM-allocated conversation when it is no longer being used. Examples include when an application closes a DDM file, or when a DRDA application runs an SQL DISCONNECT statement.

Workload group (WLCGRP)

Specifies the workload group to be used by jobs using this job description. See the Add Workload Group (ADDWLCGRP) command for more information about workload groups.

*SBSD
The workload group defined in the subsystem description will be used.
*NONE
No workload group is used.
name
Specify the name of the workload group to be used by jobs using this job description. If the workload group does not exist when the job is started, no workload group is used.

Examples

Example 1: Creating a Job Description for Interactive Jobs

CRTJOBD   JOBD(INT4)  USER(*RQD)  RTGDTA(QCMDI)
          INQMSGRPY(*SYSRPYL)
          TEXT('Interactive #4 JOBD for Department 127')

This command creates a job description named INT4 in the user's current library. This job description is for interactive jobs and is used by Department 127. When you sign on, you must type your password. The characters QCMDI are used as routing data that is compared with the routing table of the subsystem where the job is run. All inquiry messages are compared to the entries in the system reply list to determine whether a reply is issued automatically.

Example 2: Creating a Job Description for Jobs on a Specified Queue

CRTJOBD   JOBD(BATCH3)  USER(*RQD)  JOBQ(NIGHTQ)  JOBPTY(4)
          OUTPTY(4) ACGCDE(NIGHTQ012345)  RTGDTA(QCMDB)
          TEXT('Batch #3 JOBD for high priority night work')

This command creates a job description named BATCH3 in the user's current library. The jobs using this description are placed on the job queue NIGHTQ. The priority for jobs using this description and their spooled output is 4. QCMDB is the routing data that is compared with entries in the routing table of the subsystem where the job runs. The accounting code of NIGHTQ012345 is used when recording accounting statistics for jobs that use this job description.

Example 3: Specifying Request Data

CRTJOBD   JOBD(PAYWK)  USER(QPGMR)   RTGDTA(QCMDB)
          RQSDTA('CALL PAY025 PARM(WEEKLY UNION)')

This command creates a job description named PAYWK in the user's current library. Jobs using this job description run under the IBM-supplied user profile for the programmer, QPGMR, and use the accounting code found in that user profile. If the job is started via the SBMJOB command, the accounting code of the person submitting the command is automatically used. The routing data QCMDB is compared with entries in the routing table of the subsystem where the job is run. The request data passed to the command processing program is a CALL command that names the application program that is run and passes a parameter to it.
