Error description

  • In IBM Developer for z/OS (IDz) v14.2.3.1,  the preferences to
    hide or remember the answer to debug messages (EQA*, AQE* and
    CRRDG*) are ignored by push-to-client. For example, when the
    DTCN Local Profiles view is opened,  the  CRRDG8032W message is
    displayed. If the user response to the message is "No" and
    selects "Remember my answer" to prevent the message from
    reappearing,  this debug preference is saved. However, during
    the push-to-client distribution it is ignored.

    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * When selecting to hide a debug message (ie  EQA*, AQE*,      *
    * CRRDG*) using the "Do not show this message again" or "Save  *
    * my answer", the resulting Eclipse preference cannot be       *
    * shared with other users via  push-to-client.                 *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • The preference key used to hide messages contained a character
    that was not supported by push-to-client.  This character was
    changed and any old preferences will be migrated to the new
    character when the preferences are opened in a new workspace.
    
    This problem is fixed in 14.2.4 of the following products:
    IBM Debug for z/OS
    IBM Developer for z/OS
    IBM Developer for z/OS Enterprise Edition
