1. Is there an API that can automatically transfer control of a

2. During month-end we have a large number of user-submitted jobs

subsystem once they hit the job queue?
After a quick review of the replies, at least one seemed to mention
an API to get a list jobs\entries on a Job Queue (JOBQ). However I did
not see any replies that mention the use of the request to CHGJOB
JOBQ(jobqlib/jobqname) to reroute a job [that still resides on a job
queue] to different job queue that is associated with another Subsystem
Description (SBSD) and its associated [preferably] active Subsystem
(SBS). If the batch job is no longer waiting on the job queue, the
Change Job (CHGJOB) request would fail generically with the specific
previously-logged diagnostic error message CPF1339 "Job queue not
changed. Job &3/&2/&1 not on job queue."; other failures may be
possible, and able to be ignored, conspicuously the error suggesting the
/job number not found/ for a job that has run to completion since first
being located via the list-API.
