8 characters maximum, with any other rules and regulations being site specific.

And I'm sure that the z/OS V1R7.0 MVS JCL Reference Manual might have some details.

Hello,

I'd suggest you have your project lead provide you with a proper jobcard that can be used for your work.

Most sites have standards and if not followed cause abends, nasty e-mails, or both. Keep in mind that usually, production jobcards are different than test jobs and often may not be submitted by the programmers/analysts.

Once you have been provided with a "good" jobcard, the manual SuperK mentioned will be able to explain any of the parameters that are not clear.
