WRKMBRPDM
F18=Change defaults
Been forever since I've used PDM so I had to hunt around. I had a custom job description.

CRTUSRPRF DUMMY
Signed on as DUMMY.
WRKMBRPDM ...
F18
Oh, the job description here is defaulted to QBATCH and not QDFTJOBD, or *USRPRF or some such thing.

Glad you could duplicate my finding. :-)

Strange thought, but isn't someone using PDM generally USRCLS(*PGMR)?

I see no reason for that. You could easily program without being a "*PGMR". I guess the special authorities are for the cases when you need to run online debugging facilities. That compile jobs are run as QPGMR hints towards my assumption. Also, it ensures that compiled objects belong to the QPGMR user profile, so multiple programmers can sign on with their personal profile, and still compile/overwrite objects from other programmers.

Or are you using PDM for the masses?

Haha, given that I'm (still) the sole user of my machine, "masses" isn't exactly applicable.

If so, simply have them use F18 to set their job description to one they will have access to.
If this is tough to communicate with them then run this command for those users:
CHGPDMDFT USER(...) JOBD(QDFTJOBD)

Again, something learned. I wasn't aware of CHGPDMDFT. Thanks!

:wq! PoC
