Database Management for DB2 for z/OS - Administration Suite

Issue/Introduction

How do you set Global Defaults as the execution default so the highlvl.CDBAPARM member DEFAULTS settings are in effect for anyone using the CA Database Management Solutions for DB2 for z/OS tools?

An advantage of using the Global Defaults administration facility is the flexibility to have different defaults defined for various subsystems. For example, if you use the Interactive SQL facility, you specify if SQL changes should be committed or rolled back. You could specify the default for SQL changes on a test subsystem to be committed, but have all SQL rolled back for your production subsystem. This facility lets you specify defaults for individual users or groups of users for variables previously stored in the ISPF profiles. The default values will be saved inside a DB2 table on a per-subsystem basis.

Environment

The GLBLDEF command is used to access the CA-DB2 Global Defaults Administration facility.

S  USERID    SSID  LOCATION          DESCRIPTION
   CA-DB2    D23B  LOCAL             CA-DB2 PARMLIB DEFAULTS
   PD*       D23B  LOCAL             DEVELOPEMENT DEFAULTS
   PDX*      D23B  LOCAL             DEVELOPEMENT DEFAULTS FOR GROUP X
   PDXPGMR   D23B  LOCAL             DEFAULTS FOR USER PDXPGMR
   TD*       D23B  LOCAL             DEFAULTS FOR TECHNICAL WRITERS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 The CA-DB2 Global Defaults Selection screen displays each row that represents a Global Defaults Definition.  A Global Defaults Definition can apply to an individual user or a group of users.  For example in the screen
 above the definition PDX* applies to all userids that start with PDX.  PDXPGMR applies to an individual user.  From this screen the defaults administrator can select a definition to be templated, updated or deleted.  The defaults
 administrator can also view a definition after it has been merged with higher applicable definitions.  For example for the screen above the administrator could view the definition PDX* after it has been merged with the definitions
 PD* and the CA-DB2 base defaults.
