HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Defining z/OS jobs in HCL Workload Automation

HCL Workload Automation job definitions are required for each z/OS job you that want to schedule and launch with HCL Workload Automation. They are defined in the same ways as other HCL Workload Automation jobs and include job name, user name, special script name options, and optional recovery options.

Remember that you should include neither special characters, other than dash (-) and underscore (_), nor national characters in the HCL Workload Automation job name. Such characters are not supported in z/OS, and when the HCL Workload Automation job is passed to z/OS by the access method, z/OS rejects the name and abends the job if it finds them.

See Defining jobs for supported agents for reference.
