Issue/Introduction

After upgrading IPC and IDEAL from version 14.0 to 15.1 , running IDEA from the TOR (terminal owning region) CICS gives the IDEAL main panel in the AOR (application owning region) CICS but selecting an option on the panel results in showing the IPCV main panel.

Cause

Wrong CICS definitions were put in place in the TOR region.

IPC 15.1 TOR CSD member VQ15CSDT shows for CICS transaction SCFD: 

DEFINE   TRANSACTION(SCFD) REMOTESYSTEM(aor)                            
         GROUP(VQ15GRPT) PROFILE(VQ15PRFT)                              
         DESCRIPTION(TRANSACTION DEFINITION FOR MRO TOR)    

Active CICS TOR definitions were installed with 

DEFINE   TRANSACTION(SCFD) REMOTESYSTEM(aor) REMOTENAME(IPCX)
          GROUP(VQ15GRPT) PROFILE(VQ15PRFT)
          DESCRIPTION(TRANSACTION DEFINITION FOR MRO TOR)           

Environment

z/OS

CICS Transaction Server

IPC 15.1 

IDEAL 15.1

Resolution

Change the CICS TOR definitions to  

DEFINE   TRANSACTION(SCFD) REMOTESYSTEM(aor) REMOTENAME(SCFD)
          GROUP(VQ15GRPT) PROFILE(VQ15PRFT)
          DESCRIPTION(TRANSACTION DEFINITION FOR MRO TOR)
