IBM Power Ideas Portal

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Start by posting ideas and requests to this portal to enhance a Power product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas and add comments to ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The Power teams will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Add (submit as) USER parameter to filter jobs on WRKJOBSCDE CL Command

Sometimes User leave a company and they have job's on the Job Scheduler under their USER profile. The USER parameter of ADD/CHG JOBSCDE should be added to the WRKJOBSCE so that we can refine the list to only those job scheduler entries that are going to be submitted as the specific user. That way we can change those jobs more easily, via option 2.

    Why not use the power of SQL service instead? Ref: https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/ibm-i-services-sql

    -- Description: List WRKJOBSCDE jobs running under user "old_user" using SQL service QSYS2.SCHEDULED_JOB_INFO
    select SCHEDULED_JOB_NAME, USER_PROFILE_FOR_SUBMITTED_JOB from QSYS2.SCHEDULED_JOB_INFO

    where USER_PROFILE_FOR_SUBMITTED_JOB = 'old_user';

    -- Description: Use the QCMDEXC scalar function and SQL service QSYS2.SCHEDULED_JOB_INFO to change all WRKJOBSCDE jobs running under user "old_user" to user "new_user"
    select SCHEDULED_JOB_NAME,USER_PROFILE_FOR_SUBMITTED_JOB,

    case when QSYS2.QCMDEXC('CHGJOBSCDE JOB(' concat SCHEDULED_JOB_NAME concat ') USER(new_user)') = 1 then 'User changed'

    else 'CHGJOBSCDE command failed'

    end as CHGJOBSCDE_RESULT

    from QSYS2.SCHEDULED_JOB_INFO

    where USER_PROFILE_FOR_SUBMITTED_JOB = 'old_user';
