I am retrieving fields from a record returned by CICS EVENT when there is a REWRITE/WRITE action happened in a ESDS dataset. I was able to get the values of the fields, but I want to know if is it possible to get the RBA value of the record as well?

I also browsed the REDBOOK for CICS EVENT Processing, but I can't find a way on how to do this.

Welcome!
Why do you need this RBA?

Hi Rohit,

I will be accessing many fields from this record (record that has been rewritten/written ,let's say 50+ fields), then i will define these fields in the emitted business information table of the cics bundle(so I can retrieve them by the cics program). If I have the RBA no need to define these fields because I can retrieve the fields from that record by reading the ESDS dataset from the CICS program using this as a key.

You could calculate RBA and pass it along or just define AIX and read it later event based on the fields you get back.

Hi Rohit,

Thanks for the suggestion, but this is not applicable for my situation. I cannot update current setup for this ESDS dataset.

Do you know any other method I can use?

Thank you.

An AIX doesn't change the ESDS set up, it is a separate KSDS dataset and PATH that references your ESDS using a key to match your event records, if there is one.

Can someone advise how to refresh the RBA of ESDS so that entire file can be re-used afresh. I tried to close the file and emptying the data but did not work.

Regards,
VB
