Customizing QMF for TSO and CICS

There are many ways to customize functions and preferences in QMF for TSO and CICS®.

For example, you can:

  • Create QMF profiles for individual users or groups of users, which control preferences for printing, query interfaces, and other common QMF functions.
  • Create procedures and applications tailored to your specific business needs and then customize both QMF commands and function keys to allow users to run those applications.
  • Use QMF program parameters and global variables both at startup time and in your business applications to customize settings for storage, tracing, operating mode (interactive or batch), and other aspects of the QMF operating environment.
  • Create your own edit codes for QMF forms. These user-defined codes format the data in ways that are defined by an underlying data formatting routine that you create.
