Patch level detected:Dollar Universe 6.3.00
Product Version: Dollar.Universe 6.3.01

Description :In DUAS v6 a job name of 64 character is available.
On the AS400 only the first 10 are displayed and this is different from what used to be displayed on DUAS V5.1, this may therefore break processes that depend on the short name
Environment:
OS: IBM AS/400
Cause:
Cause type:
By design
Root Cause: On AS400 a JOB is identified with 3 fields # On du-as V5 1. The generic rule 2. Explicit value # On du_as V6 Of course you can always set an explicit value using Uproc variable UXJOB.
After migration from V5 to V6 Uproc names are unchanged and as a result, this could create confusion.
Resolution:
This enhancement was done to guarantee backward compatibility.
A new node setting has been created U_JOBNAME_UPROC in order to change the default rule for compute the job name.
if U_JOBNAME_UPROC is set to no, the actual default rule subsists : Job name is the Area + the numproc. If set to yes, Job name is the first 10 characters of Uproc Name.
