This command is threadsafe.


Use the IGNORE CONDITION command to specify that no action is taken if a condition occurs (that is, control returns to the instruction following the command that failed to execute, and the EIB is set). Execution of a command might result in several conditions being raised. CICS® checks these conditions in a predetermined order. Only the first one that is not ignored (by your IGNORE CONDITION command) is passed to your application program.

Restriction: Start of changeThis command is supported only in COBOL, PL/I, and assembler language applications (but not AMODE(64) assembler language applications). It is not supported in all other supported high level languages.End of change

For information about the conditions, see EIB fields.

The IGNORE CONDITION command for a given condition applies only to the program in which it is specified, and it remains active while the program is being executed, or until a HANDLE CONDITION command for the same condition is encountered, in which case the IGNORE CONDITION command is overridden.

You cannot include more than sixteen conditions in the same command. The conditions must be separated by at least one space. You can specify additional conditions in further IGNORE CONDITION commands.


Specifies the name of the condition to be ignored.
