Result of blocking a user


Hello everyone,

I would like to clarify the impact of blocking a user. More particularly the impact on the background jobs.

I create a normal user, and i assign to it a standard job. The job runs OK. Now i block this user, and i relaunch this job --> the job fails with reason that the user is locked.

When i do the same for DDIC, this doesn't happen, say i trigger a background job using DDIC, even though DDIC is locked, the job still continues.

How come it works with DDIC and not with another user ?

Also, i thought that the result of blocking a user was only to unable it to LOG onto the system. Am i wrong ?

Thanks in advance for your help.
