Change the QGYOLJOB API so that when I job is not found and Job information status = 'L' that the prior entry from a QGYGTLE call isn't copied to the not found record.
When using QGYOLJOB API and the QGYGTLE API to read a list of jobs, if one of the jobs requested to be returned is not found, the returned data includes the Job Info Status value of 'L' meaning the job was not accessible. However the remainder of ...
Add an API or similar option to an existing API to get all messages for a specified Job
Today if you need all messages for an ACTIVE Job you have the Joblog Message APIs, and if you extract the Exception Message Queue for the job you also have that msg queue. But in the context of a Scheduled Job that runs and has finished processing...
Include the Message File and library in the QUSEC (ERRC0100 or ERRC0200) when returning messages from APIs
Today, when the QUSEC struct is passed to an API, the MSGID and MSGDTA values are returned. However the Message File from which the message was retrieved/sent is not provided. This causes an issue with messages such as GUI0002 or SQLxxxx that do n...

Add details to subsystem changed messages (CPC1602 and CPC1604) as to what was changed
CPC1602 - Subsystem changed, and CPC1604, Active subsystem changed are logged to QSYSOPR and QHST and simply state that the specified subsystem was changed. There is no additional message information that tells the user WHAT was changed.
Command / SQL service to retrieve specific IPL attributes
Increased use of flash copy requires changes to IPL attributes before the copy has been made, to control the behaviour of the cloned partition.
These changes need to be reverted on the parent partition to avoid unwanted behaviour at IPL.
Would help if the wrkactjob command could also filter for a specific user as well. Now you can only subset by subsystem. Usefull if you need to see wrkactjob per user as well. Now you have to press F16 on the wrkactjob screen and press F16. Work w...
