Do a CHGJRN to target the Journal to a new receiver — name can be generated by the CHGJRN or you can create the Receiver and give it the new name

Then backup the receiver and delete it.

I think you can do all of this from the WRKJRN command.

    Hi, I think the question was aimed at changing the content in a journal receiver. I don't think there's an easy way to do this. You could probably write a program to read the journal entries and display them on screen to allow changes, then write them to a new journal receiver. The real question is why would you want to change the content of a journal receiver? If it's a database journal receiver, you *really* shouldn't be changing this. Regards, Martin Gilbert.

    Martin is 100% correct. If the data in the journal receiver were changed the journal could not be used for recovery or back-out processes. Journals are also used in mirroring and auditing. Phil

    That is why the system received the highest government C2 level security rating because of not being able to change the contents of the journal receivers. That is key to auditability and security. The journals are one of the main reasons the AS/400/ iSeries / System i/ IBM i the best and most complete system on the planet. Lovemyi

    Back to the original question. Do you suppose the word content should have been current? In which case, it's a good question and the answer is -- CHGJRN / backup / delete is the answer.

    So, you're looking for a document to support the position that the entries in the Journal Receiver cannot be altered. I haven't been able to find that. At security level 50 the security audit journal can monitor changes to objects (ie: the detached Journal Receivers) Remote Journal Receiver can provide a copy on a secure system.

    There are no program interfaces (HLL opcodes, CL commands, APIs, MI, etc) to update the entries within a journal receiver. You can read entries, you can write entries, you can delete entire receivers, but you cannot (within a program) modify a given entry once it has been written. I doubt (though I didn't look) that this would be written anywhere. Most systems tend to document what you can do (and how), not the list of what you cannot do. Bruce Vining Bruce Vining Services
