    How do you add additional JCL checks to JCL check for standards?
    For example, if a STEPLIB contains a development library instead of a production library.  Is there a way to flag the error and additionally set a specific condition code?

    Also is there a check when there is no substitution for a symbolic variable within a procedure? 

    Thank you,
    Patrick

    Hello Patrick,
    Use the JCLCheck REXX interface to enforce standards.  A sample REXX program named CAZ1REXX is located in the JCLCheck CAZ2CLS0 library, and may be modified to check for STEPLIB DSN, and issue an error if violation is found.

    The REXX interface is documented here:

    When there is no substitution for a symbolic variable within a procedure, JCLCheck issues message "CAY6130W NO VALUE SPECIFIED FOR SYMBOLIC PARAMETER "symbolic_name"- PARAMETER RETAINED AS WRITTEN. 

    I hope this helps.  If additional information is needed, please initiate a case and I will work with you to address your requirements.

    Thanks.
