One of our server processes reports when it has been ended and tries

This message has the user name that did the end job.
The problem is that this message isn't sent when the subsystem is
ended (which also triggers SIGTERM and ends the job). Then we just
get CPC1206 that has no info. Is there any API that will give me the
information on who initiated the ENDSBS?


The details can be found in the *SYSOPR [QSYSOPR] message queue, and [because all messages sent to *SYSOPR are also sent to the QHST message queue then also in the History Log, and possibly [though doubtful both per the likely job status and no recollection of a similar message] in the joblog of the subsystem [monitor] job that was ended.

For either of the first two noted above, the message CPF0995 "Subsystem &1 ending in progress." identifies that "The End Subsystem (ENDSBS) command was requested from job &4/&3/&2 by user &5."
