Issue/Introduction



Is there a how to list as well as any "options" that may be tied to Endevor Package backout processing?

Environment

z/OS
All version of Endevor

Resolution

The "Backout" feature is only available if you are using Endevor Packages.

The following situations will cause the Package Backout feature to not be available:  

1 - An element's outputs are executed outside of a Package
2 - An element's outputs are executed Package with backout disabled:
     When creating package activate option "ENABLE BACKOUT ===> Y (Y/N)"
3 -If you use the Endevor Processor keyword BACKOUT=N on the DD statement for library which you want to activate the Backout feature.


Also, Check the following ENCOPTBL option related to Backout:

-- "RESTRICT_BACKOUT=ON"
-- "BACKOUT_PROMPT=ON"

And if you plan to use the Package Shipment feature:

-- "SHIP_OUTPUTS_ASIS=ON"
-- "SHIP_DEST_LIST_MAP_RULE_ONLY=ON"


Note: Actions affecting an Element's outputs executed outside of a Package (or in a Package with backout disabled) will invalidate the backout information for the last Package and all previous Packages depending on that Package.
