ACF2

Issue/Introduction

  • CICS/ACF2 parm has 'EXIT PROGRAM=ACFAESXC'
  • ACFAESXC has been assembled from the ACF2 sample library with no local modifications to the code

Can this be safely changed 
from:EXIT PROGRAM=ACFAESXC 
to:    EXIT PROGRAM=NO

 

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS

Resolution

The ACF2 CICS interface provides this program (ACFAESXC) as a sample; you may elect to modify the program,
create your own program, or not use any exit processing. 

If  no ACF2/CICS exits are used, then there is no need to assemble, and link the sample exit, just specify PROGRAM=NO in the ACF2PARM EXIT parameter.

For additional details review  - CICS Interface Sample Macros/Programs

Note:

Verify whether or not any exit points are actually active.
Get a listing of the acf2parms for this CICS region (or list C(CIC)  exit records.)

If all entries are set to NO then EXIT PROGRAM=NO can be processed.
If any exit entries are YES - further review is needed to verify if the exit program=ACFAESXC is needed.

The default values are "no" for all exits  ... see ....cax1mac1(ACFPARM)
