We see the value for USERNAME forced to upper case when we run a job on a windows agent, if the opsys machine definition parameter is set to windows.

Is this expected?

The job owner is set to [email protected] in lower case in the job's definition.

AE does force the job owner to upper case if opsys is set to windows in the JIL machine definition.

As Windows is case insensitive forcing this to upper case should not be an issue.

This way no matter whether the user is defined as [email protected] or [email protected] in autosys_secure, the scheduler can get the right credentials for the job owner.
