I want to know is it possible to get whether a particular job is updated,
like we have some monthly jobs. How to know what all changes have been done in that.

Doesn't your shop standard require 'change history' to be included before/after changes?

Hello,

Please clarify your question.

Ase you asking if the code/jcl has been modified or if the job ran and some data in some files/tables was modified.

Once we understand what you are asking, we may be able to offer suggestions.

Hello,

Change management tools do not track updates to the content of data files and database tables. . . .

Depending on what the question really is (waiting on feedback), using the change management tool might be an answer.

You can build your own utility for this task, once you know how and what information is required from the PDS.

Hello,

If you back up the 3 PDSs periodically, you could compare the "active" datasets to the backup from some date and see what had changed between them.
