Chapter 5 Managing JCL Jobs over SFTP with filetype=JES from Any Platform

Tectia Server for IBM z/OS provides the functionality for managing JCL jobs remotely. The JCL scripts are transferred to the z/OS MVS Job Entry Subsystem (JES) using SFTP. The JES interface of Tectia Server for IBM z/OS supports submitting and deleting jobs, as well as receiving the spool output and displaying the status of jobs.

File transfer advisor (FTADV) filetype=JES is required to interface with JES instead of the file system. For more information on FTADV, see Chapter 3.

In the following sections we show you how to interface with JES using file transfer advice strings and file transfer profiles.
