JOB statement

z/OS MVS JCL Reference

Purpose: Use the JOB statement to mark the beginning of a job and to tell the system how to process the job. Also, when jobs are stacked in the input stream, the JOB statement marks the end of the preceding job.
Note: The JOB statement can be specified in source JCL for started tasks. For more information, refer to Started tasks.

The parameters you can specify for job processing are arranged alphabetically in the following sections.

References: For information about the JES initialization parameters that provide installation defaults, see z/OS JES2 Initialization and Tuning Reference and z/OS JES3 Initialization and Tuning Reference.
