I am planning to setup a Timerule to submit a job at 3 hours once, is there any utility to trigger a job?
Release : 13.5
Component : OPS/MVS
You can use the OPSUBMIT function to submit a job. OPSUBMIT cannot be used directly in a TOD rule so you need to create a REXX program for this purpose.
For example, your TOD rule that will trigger every day at 03:00:00 will be:
All this rule will do is to trigger a REXX program. The REXX program will do the actual submission:
A.1 = "//TESTJOB JOB (ACCT#),OPS, "
A.2 = "// CLASS=A,MSGCLASS=X,MSGLEVEL=(1,1) "
A.3 = "//TESTDD EXEC PGM=IEFBR14 "
N = OPSUBMIT(A.)
Each JCL line of your job must be assigned to a variable with a stem like above.
The OPSUBMIT function requires that the OPS parameter OSFGETJOBID is set to YES.
