Issue/Introduction

Question:

When SSMAUDIT is set to YES for the SSM audit records, notice that when the RESACT_COUNT value is changed, an audit record indicating the change is not displayed. How do you to get audit records to appear for fields which are not currently covered by the SSMAUDIT YES parameter?

Answer:

The value of RESACT_COUNT does not show up in the OPS7914T message because it is not character data. You will need to create an SSM global exit event for 'UPDATE' and do the Datatype conversion to write the value to the OPSLOG for audit purposes.

Steps to make the change:

  • Change SSMGLOBALEXITS to YES
  • Define the SSMGLOBALEXITTBL with the needed table name
  • Create the SSM GLOBAL EXIT TABLE
  • Add the needed columns
  • Create a OPS/REXX program to do the datatype conversion
  • Run a test to update the columns in the table
  • Run a SQL Select query against the added table columns to find the value of the column.

Additional Information:

For additional assistance in creating or editing the SSM GLOBAL EDIT table, see this documentation on our CA WIKI:
