I find your question confusing.
Endevor is, among other things, a repository for various types of elements that make up mainframe processing: job jcl, proc jcl, control cards, programs, copybooks, documentation, etc.
The date I last modified or generated an element has nothing to do with whether or not I am currently using that element in an active system.
I may even be executing a program in a job, and the job may even be in a schedule (e.g., Control-M), but if the schedule is no longer running and will not be run again, then the job and program are effectively "obsolete."
Given this description, please rephrase your question, perhaps with some contect.
Thanks for the Reply i could understand from ur words to some extent ok.
Now i am resending my question, the question is i have some online and batch programs in my endevor. what i need to find is which programs are active and which programs are obsolute. So could you suggest me how could i check whether that online/batch program is active or Obsolute?.
We understood perfectly your questions...
when declaring things obsolete there is some clerical work involved,
and also depends on how much Your change management process
the range of sophistication ranges from nothing to very sophisticated...
... just let things stay there and forget about them
in this case You need to start chasing things around
for example analyzing the program related records in SMF
to see what programs were loaded and from what libraries
and after a FULL PROCESSING cycle ( at least one year ) of non use
target them for further analisys..
... total cleanup and archival
in this case there might be an archive of obsoleted facilities...
butthen You wouldn' t have posed the question
most IT shops tend to belong to first category, so I guess You are out of luck
