Job that created a dataset

Postby vbach » Fri Mar 03, 2023 10:15 pm

Hello,

Does anybody know if it is possible to get in a jcl the name of the job that created the dataset:
Example:

//SORT01 EXEC PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//CEEDUMP DD SYSOUT=C
//SORTMSG DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTJNF1 DD DSN=ABC.DE123F.GH123I(0),DISP=SHR
//SORTJNF2 DD DSN=JKL.MN123O.PQ123R(0),DISP=SHR <--- I need to get the name of the job that created this file

Please, clarify this sentence: "to get in a JCL the name of the job"

1) the job name to appear as a text within the JCL stream?

2) make the job name available to SORT utility in the same step?

3) print the job name as part of the JCL log, and/or of the SORT log?

4) something else?
Javas and Pythons come and go, but JCL and SORT stay forever.

Not in JCL.
You can find the creation date using the IEHLIST utility or ISPF 3.4, then scan SMF records type 15 and 61 for that day for the datasetname. The latter is not a trivial exercise, so talk to your systems people, they might have something set up already.
