Add a job dependency requirement: This command only removes the job from the CA-7 queues. Cancellation of a job in the CA-7 active queue or ready queue if it has been submitted does not cause termination of the job’s execution. CPU jobs which may be executing have to be canceled from the operating system separately.

Change a Job submit time: Type the ‘XQ’ top line command to get to the queue maintenance screen. Type a ‘U’ beside the job you want to update, and hit enter. Here you can change the job submit time, as well as several other job attributes. You can use this command for a specific job, or for an entire workload in the case of a major unexpected and unscheduled change in the environment. This command will then apply to every job in the request, ready, active, and post-process queues.

Demand a Job into request queue: The post-processing will cause the out-conditions to be posted, possibly allowing any successors to execute as soon as CA-7 brings them into the request queue. Go to the request queue and review your job to make sure it has the appropriate requirements. If everything looks okay, release the hold requirement.
