Error description

  • IBM Developer for Z/OS - IDz
    
    While using IDz with the user interface in a language other
    than English, on the Debug perspective, z/OS Debugger Profiles
    view, if the user tries to create a CICS debug profile, the
    Region field is required and shows a drop-down list with the
    CICS regions defined on the host.
    
    After selecting the desired CICS on the Region field, and
    filling the profile name, if the user tries to save and
    activate the profile, the error message CRRDG9103E is presented
    saying "A CICS region must be specified". The message is
    presented using the language specified for the user interface.
    
    In this case, the validation for required fields is considering
    the Region field is still missing a value, even though it is
    populated, and this only happens when the IDz user interface
    is in a language other than English.
    

Local fix

  • As a workaround, the user can create the profile using the CICS
    transaction DTCN. Or change the IDz user interface to English.

    * Users cannot create and activate CICS debug profiles with    *
    * RSE connections that support Debug Profile Service.          *
    * Instead, users receive message CRRDG9103E A CICS region must *
    * be specified.                                                *

Problem conclusion

  • When creating or editor CICS debug profiles with the Debug
    Profile Editor, the region was not saved which resulted in
    failed activation.
    
    This issue is fixed in v14.2.3 of the following products:
    IBM Debug for z/OS
    IBM Developer for z/OS
    IBM Developer for z/OS Enterprise Edition
