Reply with quote

Hi,

I have to add 500 Jobs which I have changed to ENDEAVOR. But it takes so much of time and manual effort to enter those jobs and create SCLs to add these jobs into ENDEAVOR.
Also the jobs does not belongs to a single system subsysem.

Is there any process/tool where in which we can just give all the job names somewhere and the tool gets the system/subsystem and other details required for creation of SCL??

Please give any idea...

you can write SCL to add the JOBs to the JCL element type.

you can write the SCL with a REXX.

all you have to do is organize your data.

But, it will require the System and subsystem while updating.

Code:
 C1BM4100: E017 SYSTEM REQUIRED ON "TO" CLAUSE FOR THIS ACTION     
 C1BM4100: E018 SUBSYSTEM REQUIRED ON "TO" CLAUSE FOR THIS ACTION 

These are the errors I got.

so, what is preventing you from generating the required parameter?

To obtain a correctly formatted SCL, I always
  • generated an add thru the endevor panels
  • looked at the generated SCL in my SCL.PDS
  • used the generated SCL as a 'model' for my REXX to generate the BULK adds


you can also use the panels to generate bulk adds.

Sorry to say this, but I think y'all need to learn to use endevor.
the online help is rather extensive (sometimes hard to wade thru),
but all the info is there to learn.

The only time I use the Panels is for promotion.
I accomplish all ADDs, DELETEs, COMPILEs, MOVEs by modifying existing SCL in my library.

I trapped an 'execution jcl' in SDSF and copied it to my CNTL (JOB) pds.
then, all I do is change the name of the SCL member name and execute the JOB from my own PDS instead of using the panels.

This is what I do too.

But, the TS mentioned,

Pleeeeeeeese,
is there a problem here,
other than the obvious lack of thought and innovation?

the jcl should be in different PDS's, now.
if not, how does he know which system/sub-system is the destination?

I have found that endevor is far and above all the other repository systems in regard to ease of use and flexibility.

if the TS is having a problem, it involves lack of knowledge of the tool (endevor)
and lack of organization.

again, you can bulk add thru the endevor screens.
learn how to use the tool (endevor).

and, 500 is not so many.

In regards to bulk adds, check out the SCL reference guide and look at the SET statment.

Personally, I just build the whole SCL statment per element when I do bulk adds. However in our shop we have a 25 element limit per job so you may also have a limit (that or CPU time limit). Of course REXX can assist and build you 20 jobs for your 500 elements.

As dbz already mentioned, organize your data into PDSs by TYPE and/or SYSTEM and it will make your SCL building easier on yourself.

Mr Google gave me this:
