Issue/Introduction

 

 

Cause

We need to define a dynamic library to CA 7 and allow users to demand jobs without the jobs being defined to the CA 7 Database.

Environment

Release : 12.1

Component : CA-7

Resolution

Steps:

1.  Define the library using the following sample command:  /JCL,OPT=ADD,INDEX=&TEST,DSN=YOUR.DATA.SET

NOTE:  The INDEX can be from 1 to 44 alphanumeric characters.

2.  In your CA 7 Init File; code:  JCLDEFS=VSAM  on the RESIDENT STMT

NOTE: The  above JCLDEFS retains the library when CA 7 is recycled.

3.  In the JCL STMT area, add the same sample library as shown below:

JCL,DSN=YOUR.DATA.SET,INDEX=&TEST,DYN=2      

NOTE1:  You must recycle the CA 7 STC.

NOTE2.  The above will allow jobs to be demanded using the JCLLIB on the command.

Exam:  DEMAND,JOB=JOBA,JCLLIB=&TEST

NOTE:  The above uses sample names.
