Searching for subselector rules

From the Selector Rules panel, you can search for a specific selector rule or filter the list of rules. You must specify a value in at least one of the search fields to perform a search.

Optionally, you can save your search criteria to your ISPF profile. If you save your search criteria, Output Manager will apply these criteria to the Selector Rules panel from session to session, until you change them.

Some search fields support wildcards. Output Manager supports the following wildcard characters in these fields: the percent sign (%) for a single character or the asterisk (*) for zero or more trailing characters anywhere in a value. If you specify a wildcard pattern, Output Manager will find all subselector rules that match that pattern.

To search for subselector rules:

  1. From the Output Manager main menu, choose option A, Administrative Functions, and press Enter.
  2. From the Administrative Functions menu, choose option S, Selector Rules, and press Enter.
  3. Specify search criteria, or leave the fields blank, and press Enter.
    The resulting list is filtered by your search criteria.
  4. In the CMD column, type SS (Subselector Rules) next to the selector rule that contains the subselector rule that you want to edit, and press Enter.
    The search panel is displayed.
  5. In the Selector Name field, type the user-defined name for a selector rule. You can specify a value up to 16 characters long. Wildcards are permitted.
  6. In the Status field, type Enabled if you want to list only the subselector rules that have been enabled for use by Output Manager. Type Disabled if you want to list only the subselector rules that are unavailable for use. Type Skip to list only subselector rules that have a Status value of Skip. If you leave this blank, Output Manager will list both enabled and disabled subselector rules. Wildcards are not permitted.
  7. In the Job Name field, type the name of a job that produces report output and is specified in a selector rule. Wildcards are permitted.
  8. In the Job Class field, type the Job Class of a subselector rule. You can specify valid Job Class values, which include numeric and/or alphabetic characters 0-9, A-Z, or s (STC), or t (TSU), or leave blank to return subselector rules with all Job Class values.
  9. In the Save Criteria? field, type Yes if you want to save the search criteria that you specified to your ISPF profile. Output Manager will then use the saved search criteria to filter the list of selector rules from session to session, until you change these criteria. If you want to use the search criteria temporarily (for a one-time search), accept the default value of No. Output Manager will filter the current list of selector rules and then clear the search criteria and revert to the last-saved values (if any) when you exit the Selector Rules panel.
  10. Press Enter.
    The Sub Selection Rules panel lists only the subselector rules that match your search criteria.
