Issue/Introduction

When creating a job in jil and not providing a specific owner attribute, the job is created with a default owner consisting of the user that ran jil and the host from which they ran it. How does jil determine the hostname for this default owner value in UNIX/Linux?

Environment

Release : 11.3.6

Component : CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys)

UNIX/Linux

Resolution

The jil command makes a uname call and retrieves the hostname from that result.
