We have a requirement to have a CICS online region (X) file be shared with a new CICS online region (N).

X file is updatable but has to be shared as read-only in N.

Is this doable ? I have learnt that an updatable file can not be shared as READ-ONLY to other region.

Can any one please clarify me?

Thanks.

Yes, you can update in one region and read-only in another, plus you can keep the (2,3) Shareoptions. This can only work while the regions are defined to the same LPAR.

Have you looked into an MRO "File Owning Region"?

Normally, an "FOR" does not contain any code, so you'd have to determine the particular access for the "AOR" (Application Owning Region).

HTH....
