Issue/Introduction

The following message in being issued in high light at the z/OS console:

IXC585E STRUCTURE DFHXQLS_PYBXQDES IN COUPLING FACILITY SYSE,
PHYSICAL STRUCTURE VERSION D700ADC7 0A9DFB28,               
IS AT OR ABOVE STRUCTURE FULL MONITORING THRESHOLD OF 80%:  
   SPACE USAGE     IN-USE       TOTAL    %                  
    ENTRIES:        66028       82516   80                  
    ELEMENTS:      372960      467330   79 


Using the following rule to change the descriptor code but it is not working:

)MSG IXC585E MLWTO
)PROC

MSG.DESC = OPSBITS("BRDCST")

Environment

Release : 13.5

Component : OPS/MVS

Resolution

Although the message is a MLWTO this keyword can not be used when modifying message attributes.
The solution is to treat this message as a normal message instead of MLWTO:

)MSG IXC585E
)PROC

MSG.DESC = OPSBITS("BRDCST")

The documentation has this note:

"While processing a multiline message, if the MLWTO keyword is omitted, the rule logic executes for each line of the MLWTO. Meaning, that the primary line is processed first by the rule logic, and then each subsequent data line and the end-line is processed. Thus a four line multiline message would cause the rule to execute four times."
