Resolution

The CICS FACILITY suboptions for  a particular CICS FACILITY must appear after creating the FACILITY:

FAC(USERnn=NAME=CICSPLX)

FAC(CICSPLX=TYPE=CICS,.......)

otherwise the CICS FACILITY suboption setting will fail because the CICS FACILITY doesnt exist.

 

After the CICS FACILITY has been defined, the order is only important if there are multiple setting for the same Control Option:

Example:

The  following commands appear in the TSS parmfile in the following order modifying the transaction bypass list:

FAC(CICSPLX=BYPREM(TRANID=CPLT))

FAC(CICSPLX=BYPADD(TRANID=CPLT))

FAC(CICSPLX=BYPREM(TRANID=CPLT))

FAC(CICSPLX=BYPADD(TRANID=CPLT))

Since the last setting adds CPLT to the bypass list, it will be on the bypass list.
