Question: 

Can I use a different User ID to validate JCL with CA JCLCheck?

 

Answer: 

Yes, you can use the CA JCLCheck Alternate User ID feature to validate the JCL using a different User ID that the job would normally run under.  The Alternate User ID feature uses the runtime option of SIGNON USER(userid).   To activate the use of the SIGNON option, you will need to remove the SIGNON option from the CAZ2JOEL table. 

Use CAZ2JCL member MZ2C049 to update the CAZ2JOEL table and add the line below,

* $OEL SIGNON (SIGNON OPTION)

Then run MZ2C049.
