Is there any way to query the JOBSCDE entries to find job names or other keywords without going into each individual entry?

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

The List Job Schedule Entries (QWCLSCDE) API is used to materialize a list of job scheduler entries into a user space. The entries can then be looped through like any list in a space.

    Certainly not the best solution but does work: WRKJOBSCDE OUTPUT(*PRINT) PRTFMT(*FULL) This will create a spooled file which you can search on.

    Since the programming for the APIs is often cleaner than trying to handle a converted printer file (which may be externally described and changed at any time), I would avoid a technique that is probably slower and less reliable. Usually, the problems with APIs come up during the first couple of attempts at using them. Forums such as this one provide experienced guidance to get over the learning curve. A question can always be entered to show code that tries to call an API and demonstrates a problem. Once the problem is explained, many additional APIs become clear quickly. Tom

    We use the technique Tom recommends.  One nice feature we added is an option to check for the string in the command or text fields.
    This has saved us a lot of time searching for those well-hidden job schedule entries.
