Specify Size of generated Job Numbers

$job_digits size

This command determines the number of digits in generated job numbers. It must be placed in the SYSTEM.UJP file, and should preferably not be changed after system installation. Changing the setting on an active system will disrupt operations.

If you change this setting without carefully planning the changeover, your operations will be impacted and recovery may be complicated.

The parameter on this command is used as follows:

size The number of digits required, from 5 to 8 inclusive

Note that this command must be manually added to SYSTEM.UJP and is not available for modification in JOBADMIN.

Default: 5 (for example instance JOB00123)


$job_digits 6
