Running the Configuration Tool

To run the Z Common Data Provider Configuration Tool, you must log in to the IBM z/OS Management Facility (z/OSMF).

Before you begin

Install the Configuration Tool, as described in Installing the Configuration Tool on z/OSMF.

About this task

To run the Configuration Tool, you must be logged in to z/OSMF with a TSO user ID that is in z/OSMF administrator group 1, which is the UNIX group to which z/OSMF administrators are added. By default, z/OSMF administrator group 1 is IZUADMIN.


  1. Open z/OSMF in a web browser, and log in with your TSO ID.
  2. In the left navigation pane, expand Configuration, and click Common Data Provider.

    The Common Data Provider tab opens, and you can manage your policies for streaming z/OS® operational data to subscribers.
