We have several Logonids that are submitted by our automated scheduling software using the //*JOBFROM statement. Why is the logonid ACC-SRCE field not being updated?
The //*JOBFROM statement lets a job run under a logonid different than that of the submitter, without the submitter providing a password.
The logonid ACC-SRCE field is not updated for logonids for jobs that use the //*JOBFROM statement,.
Use of the JOBFROM statement bypasses PASSWORD, RESTRICT, PROGRAM, SUBAUTH and SOURCE logonid checks (restrictions). Use of the JOBFROM will only update the last access fields ACC-CNT, ACC-DATE, and ACC-TIME of the logonid once a day (the first use). The last access ACC-SRCE field will not be updated.
Details on the use of //*JOBFROM statement can be found in ACF2™ FOR Z/OS 16.0 : JES Security : JCL Extensions : //*JOBFROM
