action the validation action required for a job specification, as follows:

OwnerChoiceDftOptional   the validation action is determined by this parameter in the applicable OWNER.UJP file, and owners without a $jobtype_specify command are treated as 'Optional'.

OwnerChoiceDftAlways   the validation action is determined by this parameter in the applicable OWNER.UJP file, and owners without a $jobtype_specify command are treated as 'Always'.

OwnerChoiceDftNever   the validation action is determined by this parameter in the applicable OWNER.UJP file, and owners without a $jobtype_specify command are treated as 'Never'.
