This space provides the same content as before, but the organization of the home page has changed. The content is now organized based on logical branches instead of legacy book titles. We hope that the new structure will help you quickly find the content that you need.

Resource naming convention

MainView resources are identified to an ESM by a resource class name and entity name.

Class name

The default security class for resources in windows mode is $BBM. By default, $BBM is transformed (by use of a NEXT statement) to external resource class FACILITY, which is a predefined class for CA-ACF2, CA-Top Secret, and RACF.

For information about using a class other than FACILITY, see Class definitions.

Entity names

All MainView resources in windows mode (such as view data and actions) have a defined resource entity name.

MainView resource entity names consist of multiple qualifiers separated by periods, similar to data set names. The format of a resource entity name is:

BBM.product.context.internalID.suffix

Parameter

Description

BBM

Is the prefix for all MainView resources

product

Is the ID of the product or service point that is in control of the window where the resource is being accessed

For a list of product IDs, see Product IDs for resource entity names in windows mode.

context

Is the context that is set in the window where the resource is being accessed

internalID

Is the internal ID of the data table or action that is being accessed

suffix

Indicates the type of resource that is being accessed

For a list of resource entity name suffixes, see Suffixes for resource entity names in windows mode.

Products that run in windows mode generally have from one to five default resource entity definitions. All other resource entity definitions inherit their characteristics from these defaults. This structure makes it easy to manage a large number of resource entities without having to modify each definition individually.

The default resource entity definitions are shown in following table
