Error description

  • IBM Developer for z Systems - IDz - v14.1.7
    Incorrect JCL is generated in JCL preview of Property Group
    when there are multiple datasets selected in "Source Lookup" on
    the "Run" tab ==> "Debug" screen of the Property Group Settings.
    
    The JCL below is generated in error it should not have a comma
    after the first DSN, and on the second DSN there should be a DD
    parameter.
    //EQADEBUG DD DISP=SHR,DSN=TESTED.TEST.COBOL,
    //            DISP=SHR,DSN=TESTED.TEST.SYSDEBUG
    
    The correct JCL should be as below.
    //EQADEBUG DD DISP=SHR,DSN=TESTED.TEST.COBOL
    //         DD DISP=SHR,DSN=TESTED.TEST.SYSDEBUG
