We are having problems with the scheduler and until the problem is solved, we need to manually schedule several jobs and all of them need to change the MSGCLASS parameter from D to H and add the USER=XXXX.

Also, the jobs need to run in sequence.

Is it possible to do that?

Thanks in advance.

Yow will need some program to modify the jobs. Are there a lot? Making them into ISPF skeletons might be a solution.
To have them run in sequence you can do
1. Submit job2 and onwards with TYPRUN=HOLD and add a step at the end of each job to issue a release command for the next in line.
2. JES2 job groups, see JES2 Execution Control Statements in the JCL reference manual (my recommendation).
