Work with Subsystem Desc (WRKSBSD)
|Where allowed to run: Interactive environments (*INTERACT *IPGM *IREXX *EXEC)
The Work with Subsystem Descriptions (WRKSBSD) command shows a list of subsystem descriptions and allows you to change, delete, display, start, and end specified subsystem descriptions. You can also work with subsystem jobs for a specified job description.
- Only the libraries to which you have USE authority will be searched.
- Only the subsystem descriptions to which you have some authority will be shown on the display.
- To perform operations on the subsystem descriptions, you must have USE authority to the command used by the operation, and the appropriate authority to the subsystem descriptions on which the operation is to be performed.
- You must have object operational and object management authorities to the subsystem descriptions.
|SBSD||Subsystem description||Qualified object name||Required, Positional 1|
|Qualifier 1: Subsystem description||Generic name, name, *ALL|
|Qualifier 2: Library||Name, *LIBL, *CURLIB, *USRLIBL, *ALLUSR, *ALL|
Subsystem description (SBSD)
Specifies the name and library of the subsystem descriptions that are listed on the Work with Subsystem Descriptions display.
This is a required parameter.
The possible values are:
- All subsystem descriptions are listed.
- Specify the generic name of the subsystem descriptions. A generic name is a character string that contains one or more characters followed by an asterisk (*). For example, ABC*.
- Specify the name of the subsystem description to be listed. If *LIBL or *USRLIBL is specified as the library name, only the first subsystem description found with the specified name is listed.
Qualifier 2: Library
- All libraries in the library list for the current thread are searched. All objects in these libraries with the specified object name are shown.
- The current library for the thread is searched. If no library is specified as the current library for the thread, the QGPL library is searched.
- If a current library entry exists in the library list for the current thread, the current library and the libraries in the user portion of the library list are searched. If there is no current library entry, only the libraries in the user portion of the library list are searched.
- All user libraries are searched. All libraries with names that do not begin with the letter Q are searched except for the following:
#CGULIB #DSULIB #SEULIB #COBLIB #RPGLIB #DFULIB #SDALIB
Although the following Qxxx libraries are provided by IBM, they typically contain user data that changes frequently. Therefore, these libraries are considered user libraries and are also searched:
QDSNX QRCLxxxxx QUSRDIRDB QUSRVI QGPL QSRVAGT QUSRIJS QUSRVxRxMx QGPL38 QSYS2 QUSRINFSKR QWQCENT QMGTC QSYS2xxxxx QUSRNOTES QWQREPOS QMGTC2 QS36F QUSROND QMPGDATA QUSER38 QUSRPOSGS QMQMDATA QUSRADSM QUSRPOSSA QMQMPROC QUSRBRM QUSRPYMSVR QPFRDATA QUSRDIRCF QUSRRDARS QRCL QUSRDIRCL QUSRSYS
- 'xxxxx' is the number of a primary auxiliary storage pool (ASP).
- A different library name, in the format QUSRVxRxMx, can be created by the user for each previous release supported by IBM to contain any user commands to be compiled in a CL program for the previous release. For the QUSRVxRxMx user library, VxRxMx is the version, release, and modification level of a previous release that IBM continues to support.
- All libraries in the system, including QSYS, are searched.
- Specify the name of the library to be searched.
This command displays the Work with Subsystem Descriptions panel, showing a list of all subsystem descriptions in library LIB6 whose names start with the letters 'ORDER'. From this panel, you can select options to work with any of the listed subsystem descriptions.
- Library &1 cannot be accessed.
