This useful interface to the IWS z/OS Application Description (AD) database permits mass changes, “cloning” and/or maintenance in batch mode. Increase productivity by minimizing dialog usage.
Modify, insert, delete or copy the following objects: Applications, Run Rules, Run Cycles, Operations, Predecessors, Special Resources, Calendars, Periods, ETT. Selection criteria can be defined using wildcards.
IWS/BatchAD™ saves time and prevents manual errors when large numbers of updates have to be carried out.
This inexpensive product is especially useful in test environments or any situations where mass changes have to be carried out quickly: Mergers, consolidations, migrations and system changes. When used in conjunction with IWS/Audit (separate product), a “roll-back” option allows for the performance of “what-if” scenarios.
IWS/BatchAD is very easy to install and use and can be integrated into REXX, CLISTS or dialog programs for customized Solutions.
