Issue/Introduction

Sample installation jobs to obtain the HOLDDATA and ++ASSIGN statements use FTP.

In CA common Services these are SAMPJCL jobs AW050CAR and AW060RCH

How can these be accessed using HTTPS?

 

Environment

Release : 15.0

Component : CCS390 - CA COMMON SERVICES FOR Z/OS

Resolution

To download the  HOLDDATA and ++ASSIGN statements to the z/OS mainframe using HTTPS use CA SMP/E Internet Service Retrieval RECEIVE ORDER.

This feature allows you to submit requests for PTFs and HOLDDATA directly from Broadcom to your mainframe.

To use HTTPS in the RECEIVE ORDER  specify HTTPS in the downloadmethod option in the CLIENT section:

//CLIENT DD *
 <CLIENT
   downloadmethod="https"
..
 >
/*

To download the HOLDDATA specify CONTENT(HOLDDATA) in the RECEIVE ORDER:

//SMPCNTL   DD *
  SET BDY(GLOBAL).
  RECEIVE ORDER(
        CONTENT(HOLDDATA)
          ORDERSERVER(ORDSRVR)
          CLIENT(CLIENT)
          )
          DELETEPKG.
/*

To download the ++ASSIGNS and the corresponding PTFs for the CARS specify CONTENT(RECOMMENDED) in the RECEIVE ORDER: 

//SMPCNTL   DD *
  SET BDY(GLOBAL).
  RECEIVE ORDER(
          CONTENT(RECOMMENDED)
          ORDERSERVER(SMPOSRVR)
          CLIENT(SMPCLNT)
          )
          DELETEPKG.
/*
