Advanced Job Scheduler - Report by User

IBM Advanced Job Scheduler DSPJOBJS Field Options.
New Feature: Adding the "User field" from the submission information section in an entry. Having an option to determine if a specific user profile is being used in an existing job scheduler entry. Adding the "User" field to the DSPJOBJS would be a quick way to determine this.

Use Case:

Company A has an essentially non-existent user provisioning and deprovisioning process. Company B simply neglected cleaning up old profiles. Company C never knew they should. New IT staff want to cleanup former employee profiles on the systems or want to change authorities for security purposes on profiles for current employees. However, among other things, wants to ensure that these profiles are not being used in any of the hundreds of Advanced Job Scheduler entries prior to deletion or modification. If the DSPJOBJS command employed the use of the submission information USER field, this command could be widely used to either manually do the lookups or in a program that reads a file of profiles slated for deletion. Adding an outfile option would also be helpful.

    Next to adding the user to the DSPJOBJS command, adding the user in Navigator for i would also be very nice to have.

    For the time being the SQL statement below is a good workaround I guess:

    select jmjob,jmtext,jmuser from qusrijs.qaijsmst order by JMUSER;
