You could do a CEMT inquire on the transaction id you want and then change the staus to enabled. Not sure about the RACF thingy!!

If the transaction is an existing one and if you can see it using CEMT I TRA(tran_value) then you can enable teh transaction by replacing DIS or UNA by ENA (The meaning of this is much more than what i have said, but i assume you are a novice to CICS by looking at the way you have asked your question)

When you try to change the transaction status from CEMT, if you get authorization failure message, you need to get in touch with RACF, provide them with your RACF ID, CICS region you are dealing with/transaction ID you are dealing with and ask your manager to approve that request. Once they grant you the access you can enable teh transaction.

gskulkarni Is right...That's the part of CICS... If you talk about RACF.....This CICS transaction comes under General Resources....you need to define the transaction on RACF to enable it...If RACF is activvated on your shop and everything passes through it...then I guess you won't be able to use the Transaction till the time its not defined on RACF. If you need access to the transaction CEMT...you just need to ask ur mngr's permission and RACF guy will add ur user ID in Access list....That should solve the problem of enabling the transaction through CICS....
I hope the information is helpful....Please let me know if I am wrong....

you use CEMT to enable the transaction.

RACF has nothing to do with enabling a transaction, unless you
do not have permission to run CEMT.

Why don't you just ask your systems programmer ?

Earl Haigh...If Security is activated on ur shop....then you have to define ur transactions under General Resources...I am talking about Resources...beat transaction...or STC...everything needs to be defined in RACF so that it goes through Security.......If you talk about just CICS...Remove the RACF Part..then YES YOU ARE RIGHT....CEMT is used to enable transaction........CEDA,CEDB,CEDC are used for defining Resource under RDO(Resource Definition online) and CEMT is used to administer them on CICS........ So its all about nagasri83 requirments....If he needs to enable or disable from CICS..then CEMT is the one which will help him...If he don't have access then RACF guy in his shop will help him.......
Correct me if I am wrong.....

It sounds to me like YOUR shop requires the RACF adminstrator
to enable transactions using CEMT.

Most of the shops I have worked in; for production CICS regions;
RACF people define security access to transactions, and the Systems programmer controls disable / enable of Transaction.

all shops are different, and if nagasri83 doesn't have access
to CEMT , then your right, needs to contact Systems Prog, and/or
RACF person to have resolved.

That's right ...I was telling ya the same....in my shop...We have RACF people who give access on RACF...for resources.....CICS people use CEMT for enabling the transaction....I guess you didn't get my answer correctly...that's what I was explaining nagasri83.........If he needs to enable transactions he need access to CEMT which RACF people in his shop will give.........
We have different people for different work in our shop.....however I take care of both RACF and CICS sometime....as I know both....
