Additional MainView AutoOPERATOR for CICS functions

This section lists additional MainView AutoOPERATOR functions that become available when you establish communications between the BBI-SS PAS and IBM CICS region.

After you have implemented BBI-SS PAS to CICS communication, you can:

  • use the MainView AutoOPERATOR Rule Processor to capture messages from the CICS transient data queue

  • issue the C and P line commands from the STATUS application’s TASK display

  • issue the CHAP (Change Task Priority) line command from the STATUS application’s TASK display

  • use the BROADCAST application from the CICS Operator Workstation in the BBI-TS

  • use the CICS dependent IMFEXEC CICS commands from an EXEC

The CICS dependent IMFEXEC CICS commands are as follows:

CICS dependent IMFEXEC CICS commands

Command

Description

ACQUIRE TERMINAL

Acquire a VTAM-supported terminal.

ALLOC

Allocate a data set to a CICS region.

CEMT

Issue a CICS master terminal command.

CHAP

Change a task’s priority in a CICS region.

CLOSE

Close a file in a CICS region.

DISABLE

Disable a CICS resource.

DROP

Decrease the use count of a CICS program.

DUMPDB

Prepare a database for dumping.

ENABLE

Make a CICS resource available for use.

FREE

Deallocate a data set to a CICS region.

INSERVE

Place a CICS resource in service.

KILL TASK (PURGE, FORCEPURGE)

Terminate a task in a CICS region by task number.

KILL TERM

Terminate a task in a CICS region by term ID.

LOAD

Load a program in a CICS region.

NEWCOPY

Load a new version of a program in a CICS region.

OPEN

Open a file in a CICS region.

OUTSERVE

RECOVERYDB

Prepare a database for recovery.

RELEASE TERMINAL

Release a VTAM-supported terminal.

STARTDB

However, if you choose not to implement BBI-SS PAS to CICS communication, you can still use MainViewAutoOPERATOR to:

  • use the STATUS application from the CICS Operator Workstation in the BBI-TS

  • issue the K, D, and F line commands from the STATUS application’s TASK display

  • use the CICS independent IMFEXEC CICS commands from an EXEC

The CICS independent IMFEXEC commands are as follows:

CICS independent IMFEXEC CICS commands
