User-defined DD statements in generated JCL

You can define custom DD statements to be included in the JCL that is generated by automated Advisor processes, BMC-provided JCL scripts, or your own JCL scripts.

Define custom DD statements by using the DD Names parameters in the Job Control category in the Maintain Parameters window. For more information, see Job Control parameters.

The following table describes DD statements that are used for specific purposes in automated Advisor processes and BMC-provided JCL scripts.
