Company policies or other changes sometimes require that the jobcard in existing monitor definitions need to be changed.
When changing it in the parameter options (ISPF Option 0), only the new monitor definitions will get the changed jobcard.

The old monitor definitions, stored in the Global, still contain the old (unchanged) jobcard.

How do we solve this?


To change the jobcards in all of the Global monitor definitions, stored in the Global, you can use the "JOBcard" command at the Profile Parameter screen (ISPF option 0, Parameters).  This command will change all the jobcards of your monitor definitions.  When entering the "JOBcard" command, you are asked if you are sure to update all JOBcards (Y/N) as a confirmation.
