Output file definitions

In addition to the reports described in Auditing data changes, you can specify the following output file types for a log scan. All output data sets created by Log Master must be cataloged. The following is a list of output file types:

For any output file, you can perform the following actions:

  • Direct Log Master to produce the output file in several ways, including:

    • From the Main Menu, select Create or Edit Work IDs, and then select the Define Report and File Outputs option.

    • From the Actions category on the Main Menu, select an option from 0 through 7 to start a task dialog and accept the default output files for that dialog.

    • From the Main Menu, select Create Log Reports.

  • View the contents of (or get information about) output files that are saved to a data set. To generate lists of SQL, load file, or logical log data sets, select Previously Created Outputs from the Main Menu.

  • Define default data set names and default symbolic values that Log Master inserts in the names of different types of output files. If you specify the output data set name as a GDG name, Log Master does not validate the name.

    You can also specify certain default values for the online interface by using a product options file (POF). For more information, see the description of the ALPOFDSN installation option in the Installation option descriptions.

  • Control which specific data columns are included with, or excluded from, the generated output file. For an example of how to use the Create Include/Exclude Column panel for the output file types, see Example 3: Defining and running ad hoc migration jobs.
