Admin Tool MIG: User control over jobname in jobcard RFE 124524


Provide ability for user to specify a unique jobcard in the generated source and target jobs to relate to the member name generated.
Possibly something akin to the way Automation Tool provides ability for user to configure generated member names and jobcard names.

Use Case
For example, a MIG may generate source jobs<br/>XXXS1, XXXS2<br/>and target jobs<br/>XXXT1, XXXT2, XXXT3<br/>However they all share the same default job card which means they all run with the same jobname unless manually edited<br/>For automation we intend to schedule these jobs through zoSMF and need unique jobnames to match member names that can then be run and tracked in a zoSMF workflow.

    We have a longer term strategic plan to provide more REST functions in the tools.  In the mid-term, could you use REXX or some scripting to change the generated job names?
