In order to intercept the output of Unicenter Plan Analyzer for DB2 for Z/OS (PPA) into an Endevor processor, the output should be stored into a sequential dataset previously initialized by the Endevor BC1PDSIN program.

This dataset should be specified with a DCB of RECFM=FB,LRECL=80, BLKSIZE=6160.


As a default the PPA output is managed using control .LIST SYSOUT(*) in the Batch Processor input cards.
In order to write an output to a user's data set the Batch Processor input cards have to be .LIST DDNAME(ddname).
This DDNAME should point to the dataset you want to write your output to.
However, in Endevor to be able to add an output to a listing dataset, you have to pre-allocate the output dataset using the PGM=BC1PDSIN program.
BC1PDSIN Initializes any number of allocated data sets that begin with ddname C1INIT.
This utility is generally used to allocate list data sets (see CA Endevor Change Manager Extended Processors Guide).
A sample JCL for the BC1PDSIN utility is shown below:

//              UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(TRK,(1,2),RLSE),
//              DCB=(RECFM=FBA,LRECL=121,BLKSIZE=3630,DSORG=PS)
//              UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(TRK,(1,2),RLSE),
//              DCB=(RECFM=FBA,LRECL=121,BLKSIZE=3630,DSORG=PS)

In order to initialize the PPA output dataset, the DCB should be:

 //           DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=80, BLKSIZE=6160)
