Journal definitions for user journal replication must follow these naming conventions.

  • The first character must be either A - Z, $, #, or @.

  • The remaining characters can be alphanumeric and can contain a $, #, @, a period (.), or an underscore (_).

The second part of the name always identifies a system definition which represents the system on which the journal resides.

MIMIX uses the first six characters of the journal definition name to generate the journal receiver prefix. MIMIX restricts the last character of the prefix from being numeric. If the last character of a prefix resulting from the journal definition name is numeric, it can become part of the receiver number and no longer match the journal name.

Remote journal environments: When a data group uses remote journaling, the local (or source) journal definition is named as described. However, there are additional naming conventions required for the target journal definition name. The convention used varies based on how the target journal definition is created.
