Issue/Introduction

Doing a SHOW CLASMAP, there are three nearly identical CLASMAP records.  Which type code is being used?

 MUSASS    RESOURCE   TYPE   ENTITY  PROFINT   LOG MIXED EXTERNAL POSIT SIGNL

   ID        CLASS    CODE   LENGTH                               VALUE     

========   ========    ===   ======  =======   === ===== ======== ===== =====

********   OPERCMDS    CMD    39                           EXT     112 
********   OPERCMDS    OPR    39                           EXT     112 
********   OPERCMDS    SAF    39                                   112 

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS

Resolution

ACF2 uses the order seen in the SHOW command for both CLASMAP records, and SAFDEF records.  The SHOW command will list any "internal" records in the ACF2 code, as well as any "external" records defined by the site.  Only the external records are on the ACF2 database.  In the SHOW CLASMAP, the EXT signifies a user defined external CLASMAP record that can be found on the database.  So in this case, the type code being used is CMD. 

Additional Information

The number 112 under the POSIT VALUE is usually defined by IBM and cannot be changed.  For more information from IBM on this, start here:
