Working with platforms

To set up a platform where you can deploy applications, you create and deploy a CICS® Platform project, and use a platform definition to install the platform in a CICSplex. You can troubleshoot, modify, or discard an installed platform.

Before you create a new CICS Platform project, you must set up a platform home directory in zFS. For instructions to do this, see Preparing zFS for platforms in the CICS TS V5.3 product documentation.
