A Userid can be up to 8 characters. If BATCHID=0 is specified in the C1DEFLTS it may not be a valid Userid. If UIDLOC is specified is the full Userid used(or jobname) stored? For example: If BATCHID=0 and UIDLOC=(1,7) are specified in the C1DEFLTS. If a jobname of //ENDEVOR1 is used to add a element. What would be stored in the MCF as the userid? What ID would be used to compare for things like locking id?

The full Userid is always stored in the MCF.  The value of UIDLOC is used to compare the userid only.
So if BATCHID=0 was specified in the C1DEFLTS and the jobname of ENDEVOR1 is used to add a element. The userid ENDEVOR1 would be stored in the MCF. If a master display is done the "SIGNOUT ID" and the "USERID" would show ENDEVOR1.

If the C1DEFLTS has UIDLOC=(1,7). Then only the first 7 characters of the Userid would be used to compare for things like LOCKID and the like. If the C1DEFLTS was changed to UIDLOC=(1,8) then the full Userid (all 8 characters) would be used for the compare.
