I have a system with an old menu system that transfers the interactive job to another job. When you look at WRKACTJOB and see a + next to the interactive job, there are other jobs below this from the menu system. Does Adopt authority above the menu system follow down to the transferred jobs and if not, how can I change it to adopt authority from above. All the programs are set to use the adopted authority from the programs above it.

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

Hi,

If you have + signs next to the jobs in WRKACTJOB then your menu system is starting group jobs. You will probably need to change the adopted authority on the group job initial program. You can find this in the source (if you have it) – look for the commands TFRGRPJOB & CHGGRPA. If you don’t have the source, you may be able to find the group job initial program by looking at the program stack of the group job, or the joblog of the group job.

Hope this helps,

Martin Gilbert.

    Yes, that worked. Thanks for your quick and complete response. I had read a statement that said that adopt authority did not work across transferred jobs and this makes more sense once I realized that the menu system was using group jobs but it had been so long since I had used or seen them.
