Notes:

1.
The job accounting data journal is cleaned up only if a Y (Yes) is specified in the Save job accounting information about completed output field on the Change System Options display. To find this display, type GO SETUP and select option 1. If there is an N (No) in this field, the accounting data journal must be manually cleaned up.
2.
You will not see option 1. Change cleanup options unless profile User Class is *SECADM.  
Having *ALLOBJ, *SECADM and *JOBCTL authority for your user profile, allows to use CHGCLNUP command
