We have multiple IMS test regions and our prod region. When we have multiple regions open to compare data, we are not always sure which is the PROD screen and which is the TEST screen.

Can you tell me an easy way for an IMS DC program to determine the region it is running in so it can display it on the MFS screen? The programs I have that are IMS/DB2 just go to a DB2 table record to get a row which has different region-names in the different regions.

For instance I want to show --- IMS-REGN = IMSTESTA



I don’t have the Security Authorization to do a “/DIS REG A “ from the program.
Is there another way? Thank you for your advice.

Check the IMS manual for the AIB call INQY ENVIRON . It can return the IMS system id.
