Hello Jay,

I believe that when you refer to an "HTTP session", you really mean a CGI program running under the IBM HTTP Server (Powered by Apache).

The IBM HTTP Server will user the operating system's "profile token" support to switch userids.  By default, it switches your job from the QTMHHTTP profile to QTMHHTP1, but this can be changed in the Apache configuration.  At any rate, whenever a job switches profiles, this affects spooled files.  This is not specific to the HTTP server, it is true of ANY job that switches profiles for any reason.  For security purposes, the current job id is not associated with spooled files, but instead, a QPRTJOB job is used.

You can learn more about this by reading about the Profile Token APIs, here: https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/i/7.4?topic=ssw_ibm_i_74/apis/qsysetpt.htm (There's similar information under "Profile Handles" as well, since they work the same way.)   Just look for QPRTJOB in the page to understand about how spooled files are named with a different job id, you don't necessarily have to read the entire page.

To solve your dilemna, you can call the Retrieve Identity of Last Spooled File Created (QSPRILSP) program.  Just call it, and it tells you the appropriate job id, et al, that you would need to know in order to use CPYSPLF https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/i/7.4?topic=ssw_ibm_i_74/apis/QSPRILSP.htm

Alternately, you can eliminate the CPYSPLF and use OVRPRTF instead.

Good Luck
