Is it possible to have the chmod command built to set permissions when the input file &RUCD for the BPXBAT step is built? 

Is there a skeleton that is used to build the input to BPXBAT that can be tailored as needed?


Release : 18.1

You can insert steps before the BPXBAT/BPXBATCH step to invoke modification code according to requirement.

Example, if the requirement is to change the access permissions of file system objects (files and directories), then insert a chmod command.

A sample of Rexx is provided in the documentation, it allows to tailor chmod command or any other command as per the current policy requirement.
