Pinned topic Parameter to allow multiple assembler programs per request

‏2013-02-14T15:54:29Z |
I recall there was a Common.cfg setting to allowed batching up requests on a single GUI interaction. The question is what is it ? The Customer has 1,400 ASSEMBLER programs and management does not want to use any extensions.

    Edit Common.cfg (on Windows), find the MVS section and add maxAsmScans = some_number.
    There is no upper limit for this setting, therefore, if you can have 1000 batch jobs submitted, it will do it.

        I have tried the following settings, but the wizard does not seem to take more that 50 characters or so. I am missing anything ?
        MVS
        HLQ = HLQ.DMH.ZOSSCAN
        userHLQ =
        hfsRootDirectory = /usr/lpp/dmh
        asmLoadLibrary =
        maxAsmScans = 25
        leLoadLibrary = CEE.SCEERUN
        leLanguage = $L{mvsLeLanguage}
        jobCard1 = //WSSTUDIO JOB 00000000,'RATIONAL AA',
        jobCard2 = // CLASS,A,MSGCLASS=H,MSGLEVEL=(1,0),
        jobCard3 = // REGION=4M
        jobCard4 = //* DEFAULT JOB CARD
        ispfHLQ = ISP
        fileEncoding = $L{mvsFileEncoding}

          You should be able to specify a data set name with a wildcard, like:   MYDSN.SOURCE(ASM*)

          As long as ASM* matches 25 or fewer member names, the scans will be submitted.  Otherwise, you may need a more restrictive pattern like ASMA*.

            If it is going to submit jobs for each member (25 jobs), how could we change the jobName for each member ? 

            We have a restriction that will not parallely execute more than one job with the same jobName under the same id. 

            Thank you,

              There's not currently a way to use the web user interface to submit the jobs with different names.

              A workaround would be to log onto TSO, copy one of the jobs, and use it as a template for manually creating the JCL you need for running the scans in parallel.  Those jobs could also have more than one scan step.
