system agent jobs using #NOX control cards

If we get an adhoc request to make the next run of a system agent job non executable, can we use the #NOX control card like we do with mainframe batch jcl jobs?


Component: 7


Yes, you can make an agent job non executable by putting #NOX in the PARMLIB member and saving it out to the override library. This will cause the USE-OVRD-LIB  field to be set to Y and therefore when the job enters the request queue it will pull the PARMLIB data from the override library. The #NOX will be detected and the the job will be marked non executable.
