there is no rule about step naming...

but when You try to identify a particular one,
having duplicates will not let You do it

As I recall, any refs to the stepname is directed to the step that appears 1st.

there is no rule to put different name for steps in a job.
you can use same name even for all steps but the problem is to find out the failures for the job

there is no specific rule to put different name for steps in a job.
But whenever you want to use RESTART or Overriding or referback parameter, then its required to have unique step names.

Hello,

Most organizations will not allow a job to be promoted to production with multiple steps of the same name. While the jcl syntax check permits multiples of the same step name, it is a terrible practice.
