Issue/Introduction

We currently have a number of separate CA View instances running that select sysouts based upon output class and destination (the DEST= and CLSL= initialization parms). We need to combine these separate View instances into a single instance and need to maintain the collections.  We are aware of how to use separate FSS tasks to collect separate output classes, but there does not appear to be a way to select a combination of class and destination. Here are some examples of the current settings:

CAVIEW1 parms:

CLSL=A
DEST=CAVIEWMV

another:
CAVIEW2 parms:
CLSL=A
DEST=CAVIEWSS

We want to collect class A output that has only DEST=CAVIEWMV or DEST=CAVIEWSS on the sysout statement (or OUTPUT statement).

 

Environment

Release : 12.2

Component : CA View

Resolution

You can define a virtual printer, defining destinations, using something like the following:

$T Q=A,D=(CAVIEWMV,CAVIEWSS),WS=(Q,D)

The above, with SARFSS, allows for the definition of more than one DEST in the View initialization parameters.

If you wanted to define more than one sysout class, you could use something like:

$T Q=AB,D=(CAVIEWMV,CAVIEWSS),WS=(Q,D)
