Issue/Introduction

Is there a PARM that tells CICS only read ACF2PARM records not CIC records?

Resolution

The C-CIC records are selected through a logonid field called CICSOPT. If you issue a list command for CICS region started task logonid and see CICSOPT(SYSID) specified under CICS section, it tells ACF2/CICS interface to look at the infostorage database for C-CIC records as shown below:

If CICSOPT is blank or null, CA ACF2/CICS interface only uses the ACF2PARM file.

The ACF2PARM file is processed first followed by C-CIC records, the last specified record is used by the interface, which allows to override the ACF2PARM records with C-CIC records.
