Issue/Introduction

Introduction:

When we bring a CICS region up and it is ACTIVE, TPX is not updating the session menu with the new status of ACTIVE. 

 

Background:

We have CICS regions that we only bring up on demand. Their normal session status on the TPX menu is INACTVE.

However, when we do bring a CICS region up and it is ACTIVE, TPX is not updating the session menu with the new status of ACTIVE even when the user signs off TPX and re-logs on the session is still reported as INACTIVE. 

 

Environment:

TPX V5.4

 

Instructions:

TEN0041 will show the status of an application, using the ZVAR UENTWSTS & APPLSTAT macro. 

  • In TPXADMIN, in the terminal options table you need to setup a rule for the terminal names that you use to logon to TPX with.You can set this up to use every terminal that logs on, or only specific terminals. 
  • The rule looks like this: 

        Terminal Mask: A------- (if your terminals begin with an 'A'. 

  • Set the following option to Y:                                                                                                            

        Terminal does not support highlighting: Y 

  • This will require you to reload this table in TPXOPER with the reload command. RELOAD TRM=XXXXXXX  << Table Name >>

    Main Menu Example:
