/*SIGNOFF statement

z/OS MVS JCL Reference

Purpose: Use the /*SIGNOFF statement to tell JES2 to end a remote job stream processing session. At the completion of the current print and/or punch streams, JES2 disconnects the remote work station from the system. If JES2 is reading jobs from the station when the output completes, JES2 disconnects the remote station when the input is completed.

Note: The remote terminal access processor processes the /*SIGNOFF statement if it appears in a job stream.
Both systems network architecture (SNA) and binary synchronous communication (BSC) remote work stations can use the /*SIGNOFF statement. SNA remote stations can also use the LOGOFF command to end a session with JES2. The LOGOFF command has some options that the /*SIGNOFF statement does not provide.
  • /*SIGNOFF# = LOGOFF TYPE(COND) Conditional Disconnect
  • LOGOFF = LOGOFF TYPE(UNCOND) Unconditional Disconnect

References: For information on the LOGOFF command, see z/OS Communications Server: SNA Programming.
