Issue/Introduction

Is there a way to secure the TIME parameter values in Top Secret to restrict use of TIME=1440 and TIME=NOLIMIT on the job card? 

 

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA Top Secret for z/OS

Resolution

There is no security check made for the TIME parameter on the job card, so site written custom code will need to be written to drive a check for the TIME parameter. The best place to do this is in JES EXIT6. Define a resource class in the RDT in Top Secret to make the check against.
