Issue/Introduction

z/OSMF workflow parameter GLVSHAREDFILE only allows 8 characters. Documentation states:

Specifies the name of the VSAM key-sequenced file that CA OPS/MVS should use for OPSHFI requests. The GLVSHAREDFILE parameter relates to the OPSHFI command processor and shared file support. Possible values: The z/OS cluster name of the VSAM file, DUMMY or NULLFILE (all file requests become null operations and process no variables). Default: NULLFILE.

I'm unable to add the full data set name for our shared variable data set.
