We would like to have our users job logs spooled for printing when they signoff. Is anyone familiar with how this can be accomplished? Thanks for your help.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can use CHGCMDDFT to change the default for the SIGNOFF command to be *LIST.

    CharlieBrowne's answer is correct. But is this in order to meet a requirement? If we know what you need to manage, we might suggest better ways than spooling every job log. Joblogs might not record everything you need. -- Tom

    Another thing to consider some joblogs may be HUGE.. Depending if you list all users. We have some Async jobs that produce logs in excess of 1500 pages daily... If all you users are using the same SIGNOFF command you may have more paperwork than you want..Is there a reason for this or are you just wanting to monitor the logs of a few select users.?

    I think more than anything we want to further monitor the logs of our user base. We only have about 20 users. We wouldn't print them, just view and then delete. Thanks for your help on this!

    Setting the SIGNOFF command would only affect interactive jobs, so most jobs won't be affected. And it's possible that it won't affect any jobs at all.A user might run SIGNOFF LOG(*NOLIST) regardless of the default, or the job log level might be set to log no messages, or various other possibilities might be set or manipulated to interfere with job logging.But if it mostly does what you want, for whatever reason, there's not much point in looking at more reliable methods.Tom
