Understanding the SDSF main panel
Regardless of how you invoke SDSF, the SDSF main panel uses a table layout, similar to all other SDSF tabular panels.

You can scroll to view additional pages. The main panel shows the following rows:
- 1 iNPut
- The ‘NP’ column means ‘iNPut’ field and the line commands are called ‘action characters’.
- 2 Command name
- The SDSF main panel lists the panels that you are authorized to use, and the commands that display the panels.
- 3 Description
- A brief description of the command.
- 4 Group
- The SDSF tabular commands are organized by groups, which are defined by SDSF. The groups are
shown in Table 1. You can sort the group
column with the SORT GROUP command or filter them by using fast path select. For

- 5 Status
- The status value shows a reason why the command is not available, such as a subsystem
restriction (for example, a JES3-only command when SDSF is running in a JES2 environment), or the
command is not authorized. The reasons are:
- JES2 environment only
- JES3 environment only
- JESx not active
- Global not acceptable
- Command not authorized
