SYMLIST parameter

z/OS MVS JCL Reference

Parameter type: Keyword on EXPORT statement, required

Purpose: Use the SYMLIST parameter to list the JCL symbolic parameters to be exported, and therefore made available to the job step program. Exported symbolic parameters must be set to a value at a point in time in the job stream after the EXPORT command, and prior to the execution of the job step program. Symbolic parameters can be set to values in the JCL with the SET statement or through PROC symbolic parameter processing. Exported symbolic parameter values can also be passed into in-stream (sysin) data; see Using symbols in JES2 in-stream data for details.
