We have all JBA output go to a single output queue with a data queue
specified but no active writer.  We then have a program that receives
entries from the data queue as entries are added to the output queue.  The
program determines to which output queue to redirect the spool file entry
based on a combination of user profile, printer name, forms type, and other
attributes.  So we have externalized all output queue logic from JBA.  Each
of our locations has their own set of output queues.  Not only do use one
output queue for each special forms type, we also have multiple output
queues for regular reports so we can have reports print at the printer
nearest to the user who submitted the job producing the spool file entry.

In addition, we externalize all job queue logic as well.  We have all JBA
jobs go to a single job queue that is held.  We created a data queue and
added an exit program to QIBM_QWT_QJOBNOTIFY exit point NTFY0100 format
specifying that data queue as the program name.  As entries are submitted
to the single job queue by JBA, the system sends an entry to the data
queue.  We then submit a program that monitors the data queue and redirects
the job queue entry to the appropriate job queue based on user profile,
accounting code, and other information.  Essentially each of our locations
has their own job queue, i.e one for invoices, one for pick slips, and one
for everything else.  This permits us to easily do load balancing.  In
addition, if we do get an error that halts a job queue, only a single
location is effected.

By externalizing output queue and job queue logic, we do not require a
separate set of group profiles for each of our 33 locations to use
different output queues for each location.  Note that this logic is far
more complex and involves far more programs and files then the above
description might imply - but the process does work well.

We have different groups set up for each printer jobq combination then
assign the user to the appropriate groups

Subject: [SYSTEM21] System 21 user group profiles

We are interested in using this function to simplify task authorizations
with version v3.5.0.  However, users within the same group need to have
different default printer assignments.   Once a user is assigned to a group
you cannot edit their System 21 user profile individually.  Any
suggestions?
Thanks.
