SSH

Using File Transfer Profiles

  1. Copy the example file transfer profile file /opt/tectia/etc/ssh_ftadv_config.example to ssh_ftadv_config. (You can skip this step if /opt/tectia/etc/ssh_ftadv_config already exists.)

    > cd /opt/tectia/etc
    > cp ssh_ftadv_config.example ssh_ftadv_config
  2. Use oedit or any other text editor of your choice to edit the ssh_ftadv_config file:

    > oedit ssh_ftadv_config
  3. Add the following lines before the line "# Match all other files.":

    # Match files that end with '.jcl'
    .*\\.(jcl)$
          FILETYPE=JES,
          X=text,
          F=line,
          C=iso8859-1,
          D=ibm-1047
    
    # Match files that start with JOB
    .\\JOB*
          FILETYPE=JES,
          X=text,
          F=line,
          C=iso8859-1,
          D=ibm-1047
  4. Press F3 to save and close the file.

Now you can securely submit jobs to JES from any platform by simply doing a put of any file that ends in .jcl and get the results for that job by doing a get with a job ID.

  1. Create some sample JCL files in proper JCL format on the machine where your SSH client resides. This can be any platform including z/OS, Windows and different UNIX platforms.

    You can use the following JCL for testing purposes:

    //USERJ0 JOB ,,CLASS=A,MSGCLASS=X,MSGLEVEL=(1,1),
    // NOTIFY=&SYSUID
    //*
    //STEP00 EXEC PGM=IEFBR14
    //

    For this example we named the file br14.jcl.

  2. Connect to the z/OS SFTP server where you edited the ssh_ftadv_config file:

    > sftpg3 <my-zos-host>

    Make sure that the server is running and you are using the correct port.

  3. Enter the following command from the sftp command prompt:

    sftp> put br14.jcl

    At the end of the output you can see the job ID. In this example, the job ID is JOB09291.

    br14.jcl
    | 116B | 110B/s | TOC: 00:00:01 | 100%
    02.31.34 JOB09291 $HASP100 USERJ0 ON INTRDR
    FROM STC09290 MACH8
    02.31.34 JOB09291 IRR010I USERID USER IS ASSIGNED TO THIS JOB.
    JOBID=JOB09291
  4. To get the results for JOB09291, enter the following command from the sftp command prompt:

    sftp> get JOB09291

    The job results will be stored in the current sftp local directory in a file named JOB09291.
