Description

Yes, Date Simulator can be used to control a simulated date for all of a CICS region. There are two CICS settings: "CICSALL" or "A" for all transactions and "CICS" or "Y" for Transaction-Level warping.

Solution

  • Using CICSALL or A


  • via WARPPARM
    To warp the date and time for everything in a region, add a WARPPARM step with a control card that includes the CICSALL parameter.
    For example:
     SET JOB CICS33B CICSALL 
  • via ISPF dialog
  • Select Transaction Level = A
  • Using CICS or Y

    • via WARPPARM
      To warp the date and time based on criteria, the WARPPARM step's control card would specify the CICS parameter to indicate Transaction-Level warping.
      For example:
      SET JOB CICS33B CICS 
    • via ISPF dialog
      Select Transaction Level = Y

    Transaction-Level warping uses the DTSM transaction in CICS to specify the names of the transactions, users, and terminals to be warped.
