Hi,
I have a requirement wherein a CICS screen is to be binded with any of the QA region and to test the functionality of the changes we have to migrate that element to the QA region to see the proper functionality.

Now to check the changes in the CICS screen code we have DEV regions so that the code can be binded to with the DEV region and can be tested without migration to any region.

Is there any possibility for me to keep the code intact in the DEV region and bind to the QA region and then test in the QA so that the changed code is reflected with the functionality without migrating the Code to QA region.

Can this happen thru any form of code referenece so that i can test the functionality of the changed code and test in QA region and then keep the original code intact after my changes have been tested.

Please help.

Depending on how the program is coded, you can isolate functionality (this will require code changes) to programmatically obtain the CICS APPLID of the given region, via the ASSIGN APPLID API.

Then, the code updates would only be invoked based upon the target APPLID, but again, code changes will be necessary to distinguish between regions.

Hello,

It sounds like you are trying to bypass some of the controls that are in place on your system.

Suggest you get permission to do this before proceeding. If the configuration management for the system will permit this, they need to send you "something" confirming that this is permissable.

Possibly i misunderstand . . .

CICS APPLID is given with the DEV settings during the compile options so can i change there during compile time so that it points to the QA region.

Even if i do programatically to ASSIGN APPLID API during compile time the fields will be overriden.
