Gateway APPLID qualifier

The applidqualifier parameter is used as a high-level qualifier for the APPLID parameter.

Set a value of up to eight characters. There is no restriction on the characters that can be used. However, to ensure that the applidqualifier parameter is valid for all scenarios, use characters in the range A through Z, and 0 through 9. The combination of the applid and applidqualifier parameters identifies CICS® Transaction Gateway to the CICS system to which it connects.

The applid and applidqualifier parameters can be overridden on the ctgstart command. For more information, see Options on the ctgstart commandOptions on the ctgstart command

This parameter is in the PRODUCT section of the configuration file.

Default value
If the applid parameter is specified in the configuration file but the applidqualifier parameter is not specified, the system uses the default, 9UNKNOWN, value for the applidqualifier parameter. This value matches the initial default in CICS Transaction Server. If the default is kept, the value is included in messages generated in the Gateway daemon, in CICS, and in statistics. Having a default provides a reference value to make problem diagnosis simpler.
