Hi,

I have to find the job name(JCL) which created a particular DASD dataset.
Is that possible?

Thank You

For such cases what I do is:

I search for that particular DASD name in the JCLLIB/PROCLIB and then I come to know which JCL created that.

I don't know if there is any better way to find that out. I would be very interested to know if there is any.

From the SMF data, your storage management people can help you identify the actual jobname(s) that created the datasets.

If your system uses scheduling software, that system will have the info of what is submitted. The scheduling admin people will know how that sustem works.

Depending on how your organization manages execute jcl, there are many possible places where the execution jcl "lives". Sometimes, jcl is submitted by users from their own libraries or the jcl is generated/submitted dynamically.

Hopefully, your system uses scheduling software and has only a few productoin jcl libraries.

Hi,

Why not use ISPF 3.14 option & if libraries to search are more than one, concatenate them in equivalent batch process.
