Reply with quote

Hi, I'm having a trouble with the jobs displayed in my spool since the user id that i use is made of a string of 4 characters and a number of two digits
(i.e.: AAAA30), and when i want to see my jobs i use pre aaaa30* and
owner * , but by doing this i also get to see all the jobs of the users that have 3 digits and the 2 first are equal to mines like aaaa301.
So i would be really grateful if someone can tell me of a way to filter the job by length so i can restrict the length to 7 characters.

Sorry if this was already post but i searched and didn't find anything.

thanks

Isn't there an "Owner" thingy you could filter to?

I can filter by the owner when i run a batch, cause the owner is my user, but when i stage or make a promotion the owner its uchgman for all users, the job id is the only way to filter

Hello and welcome to the forums,

You might try "owner" of AAAA30 (without the asterisk).

If you could restrict the prefix match to 7 characters, would you not still get ones that you did not want to be included?

Yes, but at least it would be only the jobs of their sessions and not all of them.

Use your AAAA30 and pick a valid character for the seventh position that will not (normally) be used by others (special character?)... That leaves you 36+ additional identifiers to separate your jobs names.....

Yeah, i did something like that by restricting to 9 the seventh position, cause when i promote or stage(owner uchgman) that's the number that appears. But the problem is that the i still get to see the jobs of the user aaaa309, and appears that he likes to preserve his jobs, so i have three pages of jobs and its very annoying. And also when i want to run a program i have to deactivate the filters and if i made a mistake i have to turn them on again to stage, etc.
That's why i wanted a way to restrict the length of the job id, that way i could see all my jobs, and only the jobs of sessions of other users(maximum of 10 if they are all connected).
