Hi

When we do a recompile or staging of a component in version control tool changeman , it submits a job at the background. Now if you try to submit the same job in the spool directly , either directly or by giving USER=changeman , it abends for insufficient access authority . Is it possible to submit changeman recompil/stage jobs from outside ?

I was thinking of making a mass recompile utility . When you give a package name , it would submit a recompile job for each of it's individual members. This way it would save us a lot of manual overload.

Hi,

You do not need a separate mass recompile utility as changeman already provides this option. Please refer to Chapter 6 in changeman user guide. And moreover submitiing a changeman job in a spool will give security issues. You can avoid it by getting access to the libraries used by changeman job. All depends on the security profile setup.

Regards
Jagan

Hi,

and ideally -- it should.

Changeman is not just a version control tool -- it does link/edit as well and gives you "ready-made" load module in some changman library; at my shop neaming convetion is something like:CHGMAN.GMS%.#pckgno.LOD for the load libraries; ofcourse "CHGMAN" is just other HLQ I do not have write access to. When you SUBmit the job which was generated in "back-ground" as you say-- my ID just don't have access to this HLQ. Period.

When you use USER=username, that requires to pass the PASSWORD=password as well and without that it won't work-- so providing USER=chageman won't work.

Jagan has suggested well-- please go through the changeman user guide, changeman does provides "mass" recompile option.
