Assigning job name to SAS EG sessions in Grid environment

Hi,

I want to name jobs submitted from SAS EG to Grid with particular fashion. We do this with grdsvc_enable function on other client applications like PCSAS. It does not seem to work with SAS EG 4.3. Any ideas ?

Eg:

%let rc=%sysfunc(grdsvc_enable(test, server=SASApp; JOBNAME=jname));

Error :
NOTE: One or more missing close parentheses have been supplied for the %GRDSVC_ENABLE function.
JOBNAME=jname));
_______
180

ERROR 180-322: Statement is not valid or it is used out of proper order.

Hello Nithin,

Is it correct to have a semicolon in the parameters of grdsvc_enable or is it a typo?

Sincerely,

Hey,

That is correct. JOBNAME is an attribute to grdsvc_enable function & not an argument.
Is there anyother way to do this?

Do you need the options in quotes?

%let rc=%sysfunc(grdsvc_enable(test, "server=SASApp; JOBNAME=jname"));
