Issue/Introduction

Introduction: 

This document describes how to specify a wildcard character in the JOBNAME parameter of a SET SLIP command. 

Question: 

Can a wildcard character be specified in the JOBNAME parameter of a SET SLIP command?

Environment:  

z/OS 1.11 and above.

Answer: 

A wildcard character can be placed in the JOBNAME= / J= parameter of a slip trap.

For example, if all of your job names have the format PDT_01DB, where the underscore represents a character that can be any character or number

..you can add the following J= parm to your slip where the ? represents the wildcard:

J=PDT?01DB.

Additional Information:

CAUTION: Wildcard usage in the JOBNAME may result in the dumping of multiple address spaces.
