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

You probably want to use the system History – QHST

use the DSPLOG Command and you will be able to track jobs starting and ending. Without logs for the details though.

If the activity of a particular user is a concern, you need to visit their user profile and /or security values to ensure that sensitive operations are recorded, and their authorities potentially adjusted.

    You can always have a user use 'signoff *list' and it will create a job log.

    Change the default command for signoff to do a *LIST.

    If a job did not spool its joblog when the job ended or while it was running, there is nothing left of the joblog. It is gone. (There is a kind of exception for "pending" joblogs.) You cannot trace a job that is not running -- the are no instructions to trace. If a trace is needed, it must be started when the job is active. Tom

    You can force a job log to spool by changing the job logging level.

    Use 4/00 *SECLVL to get the job to spool the joblog when it completes, normally or not.

    If there is no job log, no. But you've been shown how to ensure there is a job log.

    ...to get them from sys journals No. That's not where "job history" is logged. You can certainly gather a lot of information about a job by viewing each journal entry for a given job. I suppose that a system with auditing fully enabled, job accounting active, database and IFS auditing enabled and maybe a few other things, could pretty well recreate everything that happened in a job. It's far simpler just to spool joblogs. They can also be left in a 'pending' state and only spooled on demand. Those should probably be purged after some reasonable time. Tom
