Do not change any members in the profile library unless instructed to do so.
This topic applies to the following products only:
MainView for CICS

MainView for DBCTL
MainView for IMS Online
You can have a site profile library and a user profile library. The site library can be created automatically by MainView Customization, or you can create it manually. The site library contains a common profile that is shared by all site users.
The MainView CLIST creates a user profile automatically (if a profile does not exist already). Users should have their own profile library so that each user can specify:
Unique PF keys
Target system defaults
Primary Option Menu
Unique set of application profiles
The user profiles and site profile should be concatenated before the distributed profile. When a profile is saved, it is stored in the first profile library that is defined in the concatenation.
During the installation and customization process, you select whether to use runtime libraries or SMP/E libraries. If you use runtime libraries, your customized library names will start with BMC. If you use SMP/E libraries, your customized library names will start with BB, UBB, or TOSZ. A few library names start with IBB or SBB for runtime or SMP/E libraries.
Throughout the MainView documentation, the BB*, UBB*, and TOSZ* data set names are used even if the actual library names start with BMC*.
BBPROF is a distributed target library that is created during product installation.
This version of the profile library should never be modified. Subsequent SMP maintenance will overwrite any changes that you make. The distributed name is used in this guide for reference only.
SBBPROF is an optional data set. It is created automatically by MainView Customization, or you can create it manually.
Use SBBPROF to make any changes that you want to be shared by all users at your site.
A user BBPROF data set contains profile members that are customized by a user.
A profile data set should exist for each user so that each user has an individual application profile. The MainView CLIST creates a user profile automatically (if a profile does not exist already). This profile is called userid.BPROF, where userid is the user's logon ID.
