edit is a term used with ispf and source change management.
so, I assume you mean the people who have modified the map source.
For that you need to see your changemanagement system.

Unless the application is logging changes, you pretty much aren't going to know specifically who changed what. Control of updates to the VSAM files is usually an application issue in CICS -- if the person has the authority to display the screen and change the values, then they should be written to the file. There are some journalling products that let you capture before and after screen images but you need to talk to your system support people to see what (if anything) is available.

Is it the fact that the data in the VSAM file has changed that is the real issue? SMF data may be able to help you with determining the user who updated the VSAM file.

Hi,

Every CICS region will have a batch job executing in the background.

Get the job details and check the job log for the transaction ID with the time details.

You may get some idea.

Thanks and Regards,
Rajkumar Nerella

Maybe in your installation - and details are only available if someone logs them.

Rajkumar,
This statement confuses me, can you explain this for your installation? What is the relationship between batch job executing for every CICS region?

Maybe he meant to say that CICS is a batch program executing as either a started task or a job.

Hi,

Sorry for the confusion. CICS generally will have regions

AOR - Application Owning region
TOR - Transaction Owning region
FOR - File owning region

If the region is not split up like this and if it has everything at one region then it is called stand alone region.

Each region will have its own batch job executing in SDSF .

Ex : I have a test region and its batch job name is STP*** and this job log will have the details like who entered in that region and what transaction the use has invoked. We do a search based on TSOID and from there if we can scroll down then we can more details.

Please let me know if this explantion is still confusing.

Thanks and Regards,
Rajkumar Nerella

Rajkumar,

Thanks for the feedback. I think I now understand what you are
trying to say.


Each CICS region has a JOBID as Terry identified. I wouldn't
normally call these batch jobs.

As you indicated , you should be able to see who signed-on / signed-off
in each of the regions sysout (MSGUSER), but are you also saying, you can see the transactions used for each signon?
