In order to use the CA DADS Plus for CICS batch interface facility an APPLID record for the CICS region in question must be defined in the batch interface file FCT DADSBIF.
The APPLID record contains the batch interface parameters that will be used to process batch requests in the CICS region.
The following sample JCL uses batch utility program DADBBIS to create APPLID TSTAPPLE in the DADSBIF file.
The JCL also sets the GROUPID parameter to GROUPTST.
The default for this parameter is spaces.
If a parameter is not defined on the FUNCTION=ADD control statement it will be set to the default value.
See chapter 12 of the CA DADS Plus for CICS Users guide for further information on the DADBBIS utility program.
When adding an APPLID to the batch interface file the DADSBIF does NOT have to be closed if CICS is active.
