is there a way to reset/clear All profile variables for an ISPF application you are testing?

like
VERASE (*) PROFILE
or
VDELETE (*) PROFILE

or do you have to put all the application variable names in the namelist?

Thanks.

Just delete the entire profile, it will automatically be recreated.

The profile is a member of a PDS which is allocated to the ISPPROF DD name. The member name is the four character profile ID with a 'PROF' suffix. I think you need to be out of your application when you delete the member. As Prino says, ISPF will recreate it the next time you start the application.

If this is for ongoing testing, perhaps just allocated some temporary data set to ISPPROF DD name, rather than using your normal profile data set.

Thank you!! Makes total sense. So much easier than writing a rexx to clean things up.
