Use this workflow for line data or mixed-mode data sets that are submitted through Download for z/OS or AFP Download Plus. This workflow sets values for job properties by using values set in each step in the workflow and by using a job properties file.

The input device specifies a control file, receive_jcl_jobtype.cfg, to change JCL parameters for a job to a job properties file in RICOH ProcessDirector property name=value format that is read by the first step in this workflow. The JCL parameters are sent from the z/OS host in a separate file.

  • RICOH ProcessDirector messages might refer to this particular type of control file as an overrides file.
  • The ConvertLineDataJobIntoAFP step that this workflow contains returns messages in the language that its External program language property specifies.
  • The EnableRepositioning and CreatePageRanges steps that this workflow contains return messages in the language in which the RICOH ProcessDirector base product is installed.
