In a CA View CLIST, the client reports that their PF keys are not active.

What could be wrong?

Environment

Release : 14.0

ISPEXEC SELECT PGM(SARSPF) PARM(SYSS.VIEW.SYSTEM1) NEWAPPL(SAR)

PASSLIB

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Regarding PASSLIB, from the IBM site:

. Under ISPF, you can pass the alternative library definitions from application-to-application by using ISPEXEC SELECT with the PASSLIB operand.
. The PASSLIB operand passes the ALTLIB definitions to the invoked application.
. When the invoked application completes and the invoking application regains control, the ALTLIB definitions that were passed take effect again, regardless of whether the invoked application changed them.
. If you omit the PASSLIB operand, ALTLIB definitions are not passed to the invoked application.
