Issue:
Many of our jobs have ":" in the job name. Is colons supported as a character in the job name for an WAAE job.
Resolution:
1. export JIL_ACCEPT_COLON=1 in your Autosys environment.
2. create the job definition encompass the job that has the colon in double qoutes.
Example: ]$ jil
jil>>1> insert_job: "my:job"
jil>>2> job_type: CMD
il>>3> command: ls
jil>>4> owner: autosys@machine1
jil>>5> machine: machine1
jil>>6> exit
