z/OS MVS JCL Reference

When an OUTPUT JCL statement is used with the sysout DD statement to specify processing, JES handles parameters as follows:
  • If a parameter appears on the DD statement, JES uses the parameter.
  • If a parameter appears only on the OUTPUT JCL statement, JES uses the parameter.
  • If the same parameter appears on both statements, JES uses the DD parameter.
JES uses the whole overriding parameter, ignoring the whole overridden parameter. If a subparameter is left off the overriding parameter, the system does not pick up that subparameter from the overridden parameter. For example:

Only EFGH is used. The system ignores all of the FLASH parameter on the OUTPUT JCL statement, including the second parameter.
