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:

    -- Description: List WRKJOBSCDE jobs running under user "old_user" using SQL service 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"

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

    else 'CHGJOBSCDE command failed'



    where USER_PROFILE_FOR_SUBMITTED_JOB = 'old_user';
