I am setting up a GSO STC record. Can the STCID field of the GSO STC record be masked?
The GSO STC record STCID field can be masked.
The GSO Started Task (STC) record assigns a logonid and optional groupid based on the started task ID. The fields of the GSO STC record are:
STCID(started task name)
The STCID field can be masked. Masking is useful for matching multiple started tasks with a single GSO STC record. Two different symbols can signify masking: the asterisk (*) and the dash (-). An asterisk represents exactly one character. If one or more asterisk (*) mask characters occur at the end of the STCID value, they match the same number of or fewer characters.
A mask can specify a dash to represent all/any characters of the STCID that begins with the specified characters that proceed the dash or all STCIDs if the dash is used alone.
For example, the STCID mask PAY*** represents all started tasks names that begin with the letters PAY and end with any zero to three characters:
The following match PAY***
The following do not match:
