    What are "2nd param" and "3rd param" ... in the v19 job logs?

    • Article Type: General

    The v19 log files have these new lines:

    2nd param (target and user name):
    3rd param (log file name):

    What are these?

    This is the log of a job submitted through the GUI Services which has these parameters populated:

    setenv p_active_library "ABC50"
    setenv p_input_file_name "ssw2009test.xml"
    setenv p_rpt_file_name "ssw09test.xml"
    setenv p_update_flag "N"
    setenv p_spaces_str ""
    setenv p_null_str "%"
    setenv p_char_conv "8859_1_TO_UTF"
    setenv p_input_file_type "XML"
    2nd param (target and user name): ,,,JSMITH
    3rd param (log file name): /exlibris/aleph/u19_1/alephe/scratch/abc50_p_file_20.00406

    "JSMITH" is the z66_rec_key of the staff person who submitted the job (via the GUI Services). This third position on the 2nd param populates the Z100-USER column.

    The "target" is the PRINT-ID. If present, it goes into the Z100-PRINT-ID.

    The 3rd param populates the Z100-LOG-FILE.

    The z100 is a new table which is used to produce the display of jobs in the v19 Task Manager.
