Issue/Introduction

We stood up Data Collector for z/OS to work with CA ESP's REST API interface. What else is required to configure the started task ZDCSTART?
 

How to configure ZDCSTART (Data Collector address space) for CA ESP Rest Api?

Environment

ESP 11.4
Common Services 14.1

Resolution

The 'validate' copy of ESP Rest Api only requires that the Java to z/OS (J2Z) FMID (CFF6E10) be installed. No other CCS USS Based services are required. Therefore no need to configure Data Collector for z/OS, Message Service, or Data Mover

The GA version of ESP Rest Api DOES NOT require any CCS USS Based services at all. The GA version of ESP Rest API is only available with ESP 12.0 + PTFs SO07101 and SO07102.
