With Autosys 11.0, variable __owner was passed by the scheduler to the Remote Agent.

This is no longer the case with CA WAAE 11.3.x

CA-WAAE 11.3.6 SP6 with System Agent 11.3 SP7 on Unix

The SetJobAttributeEnvironmentals parameter supports setting the following environment variables that are based on job definition JIL attribute values:






This parameter is set in file $AUTOUSER/config.$AUTOSERV

But variable __owner is not part of this list 


You can set and export variable __owner from the /etc/auto.profile script based on variable LOGNAME like this:



export __owner

Additional Information:

In order to execute /etc/auto.profile, the Legacy System Agent settings have to be set in the agentparm.txt file of the System Agent.
