The CA OPS/MVS Event Management and Automation Parameter Reference Guide explains that the SSIMSG Parameter determines whether CA OPS/MVS processes messages before or after JES2 processes them.

This parameter has 2 possible values, NO and YES.

When SSIMSG Parameter is set to YES CA OPS/MVS processes messages before JES2 does so CA OPS/MVS MSG.JOBNM environmental variable  is not populated .


What could be the reason to have information in the MSG.JOBNM environmental variable when SSIMSG Parameter is set to YES ?


With OPS/MVS parameter SSIMSG set to YES, there will be some messages that do not have msg.jobnm populated. This depends on if the asid/job has requested and received a Job number from JES when the message was issued.

This depends whether the GETJOBID subsystem call was done before the message was issued or not.
