Indicating case sensitivity

The CASE parameter specifies whether parameters associated with accounting data, user ID, password, and data set name in the commands and Processes are case-sensitive. You can make this designation at the signon level for all commands that are issued for the session that is established by the signon, and at the command level.

The following table describes the levels at which you can set the CASE parameter.

Level Description
Session The CASE parameter of the SIGNON command indicates if commands entered during this session are case-sensitive. The default value is NO. You can override this setting at the command level.
Individual Command You can change the CASE parameter for an individual command and override the session case sensitivity as follows:
  • In the Connect:Direct® for z/OS® IUI, the CASE parameter is usually indicated on the IUI by the following words: DO YOU WANT VALUES FOR THIS REQUEST TO BE CASE SENSITIVE? ==> Reply Y or N to this question. The value for the CASE parameter stays in effect as long as you reuse the same panel. When you change panels, the value reverts to the session default.
  • In native command mode, such as used in the Batch Interface, you must designate your override on each command record if you want to override the CASE parameter of the SIGNON command.
Process For commands that refer to Processes already in the TCQ, only the CASE parameter applies to the fields in the command. For commands that refer to Processes that are not yet in the TCQ, the case sensitivity applies to the Process statements.
