Our shop just switched to SDSF (from Flasher).

I normally work on two different 'sides' of development. One one side, I used my userid for a filter, on the other, I used a testing ID.

Flasher had an easy to use filter screen that let me switch between the two very quickly.

Is there a quick way to swap the filters in SDSF, like maybe update an ISPF table with a CLIST/REXX? I dislike using the dropdowns.

Not critical, just an annoyance.

How about the primary commands PREFIX and OWNER?

PRE mask - eg PRE @52* to get all jobs beginning @52
PRE by itself to remove any mask

OWNER id - to get all jobs belonging to id
OWNER by itself to get all owners

or do you mean something else?

Hello Ed,

You could configure the PFkeys on SDSF to specific commands, so you can switch between different filers quicky.

my PF1 keys is
Code:
PRE USERID*; OWNER USERID; SYSNAME SYS1


which shows all jobs with prefix of USERID* and owner of USERID and from SYS1 system

similarly you could configure other PF keys for other systems.

Regards,

This is what I get for not reading the manuals... we got some locally written help documents, and they didn't mention the primary commands for PREFIX and USERID. That will do just what I want.

Thank you.
