The most recent updates appear at the top of the list.

Update 2

Date of change: December 2020

Change description: Documentation changes for APAR PH31048. This enhancement enables IMS Administration Tool to decode DBD and PSB instances stored in the IMS catalog database.

Topics: Changes apply to multiple topics.

==========

Topic: Overview and Roadmap > IMS Administration Tool overview > What does IMS Administration Tool do?

This topic has been updated as follows:

Database and application administration (Object management)
The database and application administration function provides a method for IMS DBAs to view, create, and change IMS databases (DBDs) and application views (PSBs). Capabilities include:

  • image 7001View property, online status, and recovery status of IMS DBD and PSB objects.image 7002
  • Create, alter, view, and model IMS DBD and PSB objects.
  • image 7001Decode DBDs and PSBs in the IMS catalog database, the IMS directory, DBD libraries, PSB libraries, and ACB libraries to DBD and PSB macro source codes.image 7002
  • Import COBOL and PL/I copybook changes into DBD macro source.
  • Run the DBDGEN, PSBGEN, ACBGEN, and IMS catalog populate utilities immediately, or generate JCL that can be run at a later time.
==========

Topic: Database and application administration > Object explorer

This topic has been updated as follows:

The object explorer function provides you the ability to browse the property, online status, and recovery status of IMS databases (DBDs) and application views (PSBs), as well as view, create, and update DBD statements and PSB statements.

image 7001The function extracts IMS control blocks (DBDs and PSBs) from either the DBDLIB, PSBLIB, ACBLIB, or IMS directory depending on how IMS is configured. Then it decodes the extracted control blocks to readable DBD or PSB statement source code enabling you to edit the source code through the ISPF interface or the web interface. If you use the ISPF interface, you can also decode DBDs and PSBs in the IMS catalog database.image 7002
