Error description

  • IBM Developer for Z/OS - IDz - v14.1 only
    
    Using IDz 14.1 CICS SM perspective while connected to a CICS
    region, the user can select the Programs view to see all the
    programs defined to that region.
    If the user right-click a program, select Debug, then click
    Create Debug Configuration, nothing happens. The expected
    window with the Debug Configuration does not show up, and no
    error message is presented.
    

Local fix

  • Right-click the program, select Debug, Debug Configurations,
    then manually create a new configuration for the desired
    program, by specifying the transaction and other details.
    
    Another option is to upgrade IDz to version 14.2.2, which is
    not affected by this issue.
