I am using STRGRPJS JOB to submit a group job but after the first job is run which is a empty job the remaining jobs are being held. Can anyone tell what should i do so that they don't go in held state? Thanks.

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

Not knowing what the whole process is, I’m guessing that subsequent jobs may be based on the output of the first job. If is an empty job, it may be the other will not start until there is data present in file,DTAQ or MSGQ. It could also be waiting for a flag to be set.  Post your code and we will take a look.

    I don't have the authority for this group job can that be an issue?

    Yes it can. Without seeing the mainline code it is possible it could be overridden. Are you checking the authority with DSPOBJAUT? IT your group listed but with limited access?

    Sorry Todd i cannot share the code :(
    But even the empty job is being held.
    When I try to change the command list or even view it, it throws a authorization error.
