Reply with quote

I am facing a strange issue. I have created few REXX programs which I am executing through batch JCLs. When I am using my ID with all the ISPF libraries the JCLs are working fine. But in production, these JCLs need to be started from a JAVA program for which we have created a separate miainframe ID.

For security reasons the system guys do not want that ID to an ISPF ID. I cant enter to TSO for that new ID. So my concern is now, how will I use all ISPF libraries for that ID ? Is there a way or we will have to make the ISPF profile for that ID.

Please help.

Thanks
Bidhu

If the systems people say it can not use ISPF (And only God and they know why ?) then your first call would be to discuss the reasons with them.

It is quite common that technical userids for batch execution are restricted from being used by an individual to logon to user interfaces. It is not the systems people as such, but more an implementation of security policies.

The situation is not clear to me. I do not believe there is any special attribute that makes one userid to be an 'ISPF userid' or not.

If there is an userid declared to be a 'non-ISPF' userid, I think you can still allocate the required ISPF dd names and call ISPF services.

You can run your REXX as a different UserID by using the PROFILE PREFIX syntax as the first command within SYSTSIN.
