For a user to access the JD Edwards World Group Job window at any time, the Esc (ATTN) key program should be set to call the JD Edwards World Group Job window program (P98GRP).
Enter the JD Edwards World Group Job window program ID (P98GRP) in the Set Attention Program field.
Sign off and sign back on to reset the Attention key program within the JD Edwards World Menu Driver.
Press the Esc (ATTN) key and the following is displayed.
Whenever the Group Job window is displayed, an entry can be made in the Description field <Enter> to describe the session associated with that job.
When the JD Edwards World Menu Driver is displayed, (J98INIT is the initial program) press the Esc (ATTN) key and the following is displayed.
The new group job GROUP02 is now in process. The group job GROUP01 was suspended when the function key F5 was pressed.
Note:If you are set up to access JD Edwards World software by J98INITA, your library list selection list will appear when F5 is used. Select an environment and then you will be able to display the JD Edwards World Group Job window.
All suspended group jobs are displayed in the window.
Any suspended group job can be activated, as illustrated below.
Enter option 9 next to the group job you want to terminate.
Select one of the following methods:
Press F18 within the JD Edwards World Group Job window.
Enter SIGNOFF, 90, or ".." on the JD Edwards World Group Job Cmd/HS command line.
Note:Because group jobs are created under one sign on, all group jobs are terminated when the signoff command is executed.
To create group jobs that call a program outside the JD Edwards World software, the JD Edwards World Group Job window allows an external program to be executed. In addition, the Esc (ATTN) key can be pressed within the external program and still allow access to the JD Edwards World group jobs.
To call an external program, press F11 within the JD Edwards World Group Job window.
Complete the Change Library List screen.
You can add libraries related to the external program. Libraries currently in the library list can be removed if desired. However, the following libraries must be left in the library list to retain the link to the JD Edwards World group jobs:
Library containing F9220 (JD Edwards World Vocabulary Overrides)
Library containing F0082 (JD Edwards World Menu Master)
Library containing F0092 (JD Edwards World User Information)
Library containing JD Edwards World Objects (For example, RPG, CL, DSPF)
After the CHGLIBL command has been executed, the CALL command prompt is displayed.
Enter the external program.
When the CALL command is executed, the external program will be executed.
To work with a JD Edwards World group job, the Esc (ATTN) key can be pressed to display the JD Edwards World Group Job window.
Any suspended group job can be activated from the JD Edwards World Group Job window.
Hidden Selections are commands and features of the JD Edwards World products that are not available through a menu selection.
The JD Edwards World Hidden Selection window (HS) can be used to display and execute hidden selections.
JD Edwards World Hidden Selection (Menu) Security is used when users execute hidden selections.
No JD Edwards World Menus or JD Edwards World Hidden Selections related to menus are allowed, (for example 27 or 29).
You can enter any command on the command line at the bottom of the JD Edwards World Group Job window.
Press F4 to prompt for a command.
Place a "?" in front of a command to prompt.
Press F9 to retrieve previous commands.
Any parameters you enter while in prompt mode are not retrieved.
The last 10 previous commands are saved.
Only successfully executed commands are saved.
When you exit by pressing F3, previous commands are lost.
JD Edwards World Fast Path Commands from User Defined Code 00/FP can be executed. F13 to display all Fast Path Commands.
To retain all commands entered and retrieve parameters entered in prompt mode, access the IBM Command Entry screen from the JD Edwards World Group Job window (For example, JD Edwards World Hidden Selection 36) and enter commands.
Commands can only be executed if there is a value of "Y" or " " in the Allow Command Entry (Y/N) field defined in the JD Edwards World User Information option found on A94.
HS 33 uses the IBM command WRKSBMJOB. On this command screen, a user can access the CHGJOB command to move jobs to a different queue or change priorities.
Caution:Securing the CHGJOB command is problematic since JD Edwards World uses this command during the sign on process.
As of JD Edwards World release A81CU5 or A73CU15, the following workaround is available.
Objects J00WSJ, P00WSJ, V00WSJ and X00WSJ should be in the JD Edwards World object library.
Change the ZHIDDEN menu selection with SELECTION33 on it so the Option Key has J00WSJ rather than J00SBMJOB.
Sign out of the environment and back in. HS33 will present the information on a JD Edwards World menu which enables Function key and Option key security.
Note:Use Knowledge Document WST-00-0023 for IBM releases below V4R5.
