How to determine the job name/user/number for a CL program called by a GoAnywhere Project.

This sample project XML will allow you to get the user and job name as well as the job number from your called CL program.

<project name="system i retrieve job d info " mainModule="Main" version="1.0" logLevel="normal">
<variable name="JOBNAME" value="none" />
<variable name="USERNAME" value="none" />
<variable name="JOBNBR" value="none" />

<module name="Main">

<exec400 label="Connect to System i" version="1.0" resourceId="DEV 54">
<program name="badcl" library="wmwise">
<parameter label="JOBNAME " dataType="text" length="10" usage="out" outputVariable="JOBNAME" />
<parameter label="USERNAME" dataType="text" length="10" usage="out" outputVariable="USERNAME" />
<parameter label="JOBNBR" dataType="text" length="6" usage="out" outputVariable="JOBNBR" />

<print version="1.0">
<![CDATA[JOB Description from CL program ${JOBNAME} ${USERNAME} ${JOBNBR}
