Provide a Real Retrieve Identity of Last SPOOLED File API
The QSPRILSP API was useful to retrieve the last spool file created in a job. Today, however, it has been compromised and returns the last spooled file in the thread in which the API runs, not the last SPOOLED file for the job for which it was originally intended. For example, if no SPOOLED file is created in the current thread but one was created in the main job/thread, the QSPRILSP returns nothing. Please provide a new API that does what we want, returns the LAST SPOOLED FILE for the JOB, regardless of the thread in which the API is run or the thread in which the SPOOLED file is created.
Using SQL we created a UDTF to return the information from the QSPRILSP API. However, since SQL is multi-threaded, and UDTF nearly always run in their own thread, the UDTF always returns nothing.
