Because time is NOT a job level attribute. There's a clock. It is managed by the OS. It applies to all jobs within that OS partition.

If you changed your job time, you lose context with system logging and auditing facilities. How are you supposed to know when a transaction occurred if job time is not relative to system time.

The ONLY time related adjustment that needs to be supported at the job level is UTC offset. So far, I think this is still a stated goal, but this feature is not fully implemented yet. Help for the Job Time field in the DSPJOB command implies that job date and time is derived from UTC (presumably system time)

Current offset

The current offset, in hours and minutes, from Coordinated Universal
Time (UTC). This value is added to Coordinated Universal Time to
calculate job time. This value has been adjusted for Daylight
Saving Time, if necessary.

Job time

Current date
The local job date calculated by adding the job's current time
and year offsets to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

Subject: How do I change the time in a job?

Does anyone know how to change the time using locales on the job?



I cannot modify any of the programs in the job. I simply need to change the
time like you change the date in CHGJOB. Everything runs normally when you
change the date, so why not the time.
