Authority to operate in batch mode
Certain QMF and Db2® authorizations are required to submit a batch job.
- If your site uses RACF®, the logon ID is the value of the USER parameter on your JOB statement. The Db2 primary authorization ID is the one corresponding to that logon ID.
- If your site does not use RACF, the logon ID and primary authorization ID are determined in the JCL to execute a batch job.
- You can operate QMF interactively
using the logon ID for the batch run.
Users with authority to use QMF interactively and run jobs in the background can also use it in batch mode.
- The authorization ID corresponding to the logon ID owns the procedure to be run, or that procedure is shared.
In running the procedure's commands, the authorization ID works interactively. However, not every QMF command that can be run interactively can be run in batch mode.
