Hi,

I am facing an issue in JCL.

I am not able to see a step(Program execution step) in JCL even after successful execution on JCL.

In what way do you not see the step? IF you cannot see it how do you know it executed?

There are 4 places to look using SDSF - system messages (usually the first dataset), expanded JCL (usually second dataset), step allocations and messages (usually 3rd dataset) and any output to spool from your program. If your step does not appear in any of these then it was not in the job.

Did you have a job terminator card (// by itself) before the step? Was the exec statement for that step commented out? Were you looking at the correct job!?

Check your step JCL and look for any SYSTSPRT, SYSPRINT, SYSOUT or whatever (depending on which program runs).
Is there something missing ? assigned to DUMMY or a garbage class ?

If I remember correctly, if MSGCLASS is assigned to a "purge immediately" and all of your SYSOUT classes are *, you'll never see any output.

Check with your local admin/sysprogs to make sure you're using the right SYSOUT class on your SYSPRINT DD and MSGCLASS on your jobcard. These are set by local standards, some classes can be set to immediate purge.

In SDSF enter the following on the command line where yourUid=your RACF ID:

OWNER yourUid; PRE **; DEST; SYSNAME **
