Hi,

I would like to ask a question about endevor. I would like to be able to have several versions for the jcls in my installation. I would like that when it goes from the development environment to production, to be able to modify the source adapting the nomenclature to the production environment. This is some way to do it, since I tried the generate, update and add options, but I can't find the solution.

I accept any suggestion.

Thanks for your help

Best regards,

You mean to make a use of system symbolic? when jobs run in their environment accordingly job details are changed based on symbolics.

Hello,

I understand that you say if you work with cataloged procedures.

We do not work with cataloged procedures, but we do change certain parameters in the jcls, such as the db2 subsystem, etc that we want to adapt according to the environment. As the component is promoted it will be adapted to the environment where it is promoted.

If you use the JCL SET statements for symbolics, you don't need to be using cataloged procedures. SET will work with in-line JCL, too.

why not ask the endevor support group in Your organisation ???

all the tools used for software development control undergo quite a bit of customisation

now a few points to consider ...

if everything runs in a single <image> of zOs only the endeavour customisation must be taken into account

for each stage/process endeavour ( or any other alike tool )
lets you customise in pretty deep details the libraries and the db2 subsystem to be used - btdtgtts

if on the other side some stage/process is supposed to run in a different image from the one used to issue the command , the the system symbols will become handy
the only thing needed is to have a clear map of who does what/where/when
