You can change these details on the Change Task Identifier screen:

Description

A description of the task identifier. This will appear on all Task lists and reports.

Authorized Users

Authorized user/group profiles that can work under the task. Up to ten valid system user/group profiles can be entered. User/group profiles not defined are restricted from using this task identifier except for QSECOFR, the QSECOFR group or the Partition security officer user/group profile.

Task Status

The current status of the task. Valid task status are OPN (Task is Open), WRK (Work is/has been performed), CLS (Task is Closed) and FIN (Task is Finished). Note that you must set a task's status to FIN or CLS before you can delete it.

Note: Task status cannot be changed from FIN (Finished) to any other status.

When you change the task's status to FIN, you will be asked if you want to retain the Task History for this task.

If you enter NO, the task history will be deleted immediately.

If you enter YES, the task history will be retained. This history is subject to the normal purging rules. Refer to 5.4.3 Purge Task History for details.

In both cases, the objects locked to this task will be released and may then be used by other tasks.
