Capture of JES data sets and report SYSOUT

Output Manager can capture and archive JES data sets as well as report SYSOUT.

Many sites want to separate report output from the JES data sets that jobs produce. To do so, they can direct production reports to SYSOUT classes that are different from those for JES listings. For instance, they might specify //PRODREPT DD SYSOUT=P for production reports and specify MSGCLASS=A on the job card for JES message output. Also, sites might have different storage and retention requirements for production reports than for JES listings.

In Output Manager, you can configure selector rules and archive attributes to capture and archive JES data sets separately. For example, you could use the archive mask SYSOUT.&JOBNAME..&JOBNUMB..&N to allocate an archive data set for JES output.
