Issue/Introduction

What is the effect of having PERMDSN in the CA 7 Init File:

Environment

Release : 11.3

Component :

Resolution

SThe PERMDSN=YES parm on the OPTIONS statement specifies whether all data sets added to the database default to permanent. The default is NO. If you specify PERMDSN=YES,  data sets added through the LOAD processing and through the DB.6 panel default to PERM. The DB.3.1 panel shows a PERM value of N. However, the job does not consider the data set as a requirement because the DB.6 panel shows the PERM status.

Another option would be to not LOAD the job's JCL to the CA 7 Database, if all datasets are input datasets.  You can accomplish this by setting the RELOAD option on the DB.1 panel to 'X'
