Issue/Introduction

Is it possible to use a single PROC to start multiple started tasks, but use different jobnames with each task having a different ACID? The start command is:

S procname,JOBNAME=jobname.

If yes, how should this be defined so each "jobname" is associated with a different ACID?

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA Top Secret for z/OS

Resolution

Set OPTIONS(84) in the Top Secret parameter file. OPTIONS(84) assigns a specific ACID to a started task, based on the JOBNAME parameter specified when initiating the started task. For example, a started task can be started with the following command:

S proc_name,JOBNAME=job_name

job_name
Specifies the procedure name of the started task. This procedure determines which ACID to assign to the started task procedure (proc_name).

With OPTIONS(84) set, the following could be issued for each “job_name” to be associated with a different “aaaa” (acid). 

TSS ADD(STC) PROCNAME(jobname) ACID(aaaa) 

For example,

TSS ADD(STC) PROCNAME(JOB123) ACID(BOB)

would associate acid BOB with the job JOB123 in the start command:

S procname,JOBNAME=JOB123

NOTES:
- The OPTIONS control option can not be set dynamically (via TSS MODIFY). It must be set in the Top Secret parameter file and Top Secret recycled to pick up the change.
- OPTIONS(84) will still honor the current S procname if no JOBNAME= is included in the start command.
