Hi,
Please can encode a command in the procedure division to start a dynamic session for COBOL/CICS debugging ?

Your post is not clear. What software is being used for the dynamic session? CICS programs are not "dynamic sessions" and they are started with a CICS transaction, not via a command in the PROCEDURE DIVISION. So what are you trying to do, and with what software are you trying to do it?

Robert,
I'm running a COBOL under CICS and IBM DEBUG MONITOR. So the question is about possibilities to start a session (or screem) for DEBUG this program and do this by a COMMAND in COBOL PROCEDURE or API EXEC CICS. A parameter in LINKAGE SECTION by CALLER PROGRAM says "IT'S TIME TO DEBUG"!

Do you mean IBM Debug Tool? If not, you must have some super-secret alpha-test product.

Assuming you mean Debug Tool, consult the manual, where it applies to CICS/COBOL programs. That is how it works, as documented in the manual.

This is one of those times when terminology is critical to understand. The IBM Debug Tool is the standard (IBM) mainframe debugging tool (there are others from other vendors). However, a Google search of ibm debug monitor returns 126,000 hits and while the first several reference IBM Debug Tool, there are other references on the first page of results -- such as Getting started with the monitor model debugger which is associated with the IBM Business Process Manager Advanced 8.0.0 -- and mentions Java EE on the referenced page.

So if you meant IBM Debug Tool by "IBM DEBUG MONITOR" then as stated by Bill you need to do some manual reading. If you meant another product, you need to find and read those manuals to determine how to do what you want with it. We don't read minds on this forum so we have no idea if you are using the Debug Tool or something else called DEBUG MONITOR. Perhaps your best bet would be to talk to your site support group and get their assistance.
