Can you please let me know the way to delete all datasets starting with same qualifier using JCL?

For Eg : To delete all datasets starting with XXXX.TEST.* (* - can be anything)

Hi,

Yes, use IDCAMS to delete specially for it comes handy in casr of migrated datasets rather than anything else that causes a recall.

When IDCAMS deletes the catalog entry and sees that the dataset is migrated, it further signals to HSM to delete the MCDS D record which removes the entry from HSM.
