Is there any way to move the MUFNAME or the MUF jobname to a different position on CA Datacom messages?

Introduction:

Multiuser (MUF) startup option MUFMSG can be used to identify, via MUFNAME and/or MUF jobname, the CA Datacom region that has issued a message.  

MUF jobname and/or MUFNAME are then prefixed to the message; for example:

MUFMSG     YES,NO,YES

prints the MUF jobname and the MUFNAME on most messages issued by the MUF and some of the messages that concern communication with a MUF, like:

jobname:mufname:DB00903I - OPENED, BASE -    nn

 

However, some automation products do not work correctly if any string (like MUF jobname or MUFNAME) is prefixed to the messages identifier.

Question:

Is there any way to have the MUF identifiers printed along with the CA Datacom messages but not prefixed to the messages themselves?

Answer:

Multiuser (MUF) startup option MESSAGE can be used to move the identifier(s) after the text of selected messages.

For example, using the following MUF startup options:

MUFMSG     YES,NO,YES
MESSAGE    SUFFIX,DB00903

only the DB00903I message will be printed in this way:

DB00903I - OPENED, BASE -     nn:jobname:mufname
