For a Hamiltonian enjoying rather weak regularity assumptions, we provide necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of a global viscosity solution to the corresponding stationary Hamilton-Jacobi equation at a fixed level $a$, taking a prescribed value on a given closed subset of the ground space. The analysis also includes the case where $a$ is the Mañé critical value. Our results are based on a metric method extending Maupertuis approach.
   For general underlying spaces, compact or noncompact, we give a global version of the classical characteristic method based on the notion of $a$-characteristic. In the compact case, we propose an inf-sup formula producing the minimal solution of the problem, where the generalized Aubry set is involved.
