This page describes the initialization parameters from REDISP through WRITER:
deliver
This page describes the initialization parameters from REDISP through WRITER:
REDISP
If set to YES, specifies that all users can display (refresh) online selection lists by pressing Enter instead of entering the REDISP input command on the command line (the default procedure).
Syntax:
REDISP=
xxx
Default:
NO or OFF
RMSWARN
Determines how RMORMS reacts to an inactive started task.
  • When set to YES, RMORMS issues the RMORRS18 message, but it does not ABEND the job. Normal CA 11 restart processing continues.
  • When set to NO, the default, RMORRS18 is issued, and the job does ABEND with code U0004.
This parameter is intended for use when the product is not active. Jobs not defined to CA Deliver need CA 11 processing, and RMORMS is executed to call CA 11 (U11RMS).
With RMSWARN=YES, no CA Deliver restart processing is to occur for jobs defined to an inactive CA Deliver.
To ensure that restart processing happens, set RMSWARN to NO.
Syntax:
RMSWARN=YES/NO
Default:
NO
RPTENQ

NO
RPTNPROD
Specifies that a page containing the string text-string is to be output if no data is output for a stacked or interleaved report.
You can use a maximum of 69 characters for text-string.
You can include special and blank characters in text-string.
If you include special or blank characters, you must enclose
text-string
in single quotation marks.
Syntax:
RPTNPROD=

Syntax:
SMF=
xxx
Default:
NO
SMF30
Specifies whether type 30 SMF records are produced by your operating system and are used by the product to determine job termination.
If you specify NO, type 5 SMF records must be produced by your operating system for the product to determine job termination.
Syntax:
SMF30=
xxx
Default:
NO
START
The name of the report activation procedure that is started at the start of a new daily cycle.
Syntax:
START=
xxxxxxxx
Default:
No Start Procedure
STKCHNn
The "skip to" line number for printer channels 2 - 12 for stacked report processing.
  • Specifies the channel and has a value of 2 - 12
    line

Syntax:
STKCHN
n
=
line
Default:
None
STKMODE
Indicates whether line or record mode processing is to be used to produce stacked reports.
  • LINE
    Specifies that carriage control characters determine line spacing when searching for text to separate stacked reports.
  • RECORD
    Specifies that carriage control characters are ignored (except for a skip to line one channel command) and each record is considered a line when searching for text to separate stacked reports.
In line mode, blank lines are counted; in record mode they are not.
Syntax:
STKMODE=
xxxxxx
Default:
LINE
STNAMEn
Specifies the 1 - 8 character name of the 1 - 5 optional tracking stations for which detailed historical data for reports and bundles can be posted.
  • Represents a value from 1 - 5 inclusive.
Syntax:
STNAME
n
=
xxxxxxxx
Default:
None
STKNOTXT
The default if no report identification text is specified.
ALL includes all report pages in the output.
XCL includes report pages that are not explicitly matched by other exclusive reports.
Stacked reports without any text are treated as an exclusive report "catch-all" definition.
Syntax:
STKNOTXT=
xxx
Default:
XCL
STOPPW
The password that is required to stop the product on an operating system.
Syntax:
STOPPW=
xxxxxxxx
Default:
No Password Required
SUBSYS
Identifies the subsystem name for CA Deliver to process and specifies a default class, destination, form name, and writer name for the subsystem data set.
Syntax:
SUBSYS=name/class/dest/form/writer
  • name
    Defines the 1-4 character subsystem name. The subsystem name can be the subsystem name for the subsystem data set, JES2, JES3, alternate JES name for a SYSOUT data set, or DSC for data set collector.
  • class
    Defines an optional 1-character default SYSOUT class to be associated with the SUBSYS data set.
  • dest
    Defines an optional 1-8 character default destination to be associated with the SUBSYS data set.
  • form
    Defines an optional 1-8 character default form name to be associated with the SUBSYS data set.
  • writer
    Defines an optional 1-8 character default writer name to be associated with the SUBSYS data set.
To specify the SUBSYS initialization parameter, the CA Deliver database must versioned to release 14.0. To display the SUBSYS initialization parameter, use the "F RMOSTC,DISP" command. To modify the SUBSYS initialization parameter, use the "F RMOSTC,SET SUBSYS=" command.
SYSCLSL
A list of 1 - 36 classes of SYSOUT to which report processing is limited.
The product selects only those DD statements in the specified SYSOUT class.
For example, assume that your SYSOUT falls into classes S and R, and that production SYSOUT is sometimes produced using the same job name for test purposes in a class other than S and R.
To limit the product’s processing only to the times the production jobs are run in production, specify:
SYSCLSL=SR
Additional information is presented in the description of the initialization parameter JOBCLSL.
If you use CA Spool and CA Spool has been instructed to intercept the same class and destination that the product is intercepting, CA Spool intercepts the file. In this environment, select a SYSOUT class that is not used by CA Spool.
Syntax:
SYSCLSL=
xxxxxxxx
Default:
All SYSOUT classes
SYSID
A unique identifier for the system.
The identifier consists of a single national character ($, #, @, A - Z, 0 - 9).
The collating sequence of the identifiers determines the order in which the CA Deliver systems are offered control of SYSOUT.
The specified or defaulted SYSID is associated with database name specified by the NAME parameter. The database name specified by the NAME parameter must only be associated with one SYSID. To prevent any residual effects, association changes must only be made when the system image is being IPLed.
Syntax:
SYSID=
x
Default:
$
TEXT
Specifies CAPS or ASIS according to whether report identification text is translated to uppercase (CAPS) when entered for a report definition or left as is (ASIS).
Syntax:
TEXT=
xxxx
Default:
CAPS
TIME
The time of day in a 24-hour format (1420 represents 2:20 p.m.) when a new daily cycle is to be automatically initiated.
  • Specify 0 to suppress the automatic initiation of any daily cycle.
  • If you specify N for a particular day for the DAYs initialization parameter, the daily cycle on that day is not automatically initiated.
The daily cycle is triggered by an internal timer that is set based on the local time. When the local time changes because of daylight savings time, the internal timer is adjusted because the GMT offset has changed. Therefore the daily cycle starts at the proper local time after the time change has occurred.
Syntax:
TIME=
nnnn
Default:
0
WARNING
Specifies whether the operator warning RMOSTC32 displays when you or an operator starts CA Deliver.
If you specify YES, you are prompted to reply either Y or N to continue processing.
Syntax:
WARNING=
xxx
Default:
YES
WEBSVRn
Specifies 1 to 4 web links to CA OM Web Viewer for accessing an email-attached report.
The web server link for each recipient is defined to the distribution definition. If no web server link is specified in the distribution definition, WEBSVR1 is used.
Syntax:
WEBSVR
n
=
URL
Length:
maximum 40 characters
Default:
None
Example
WEBSVR1=HTTP:\\OMWEBSVR\
WRITER
ASIS - the WRITER field is populated from the Writer definition in CA Deliver.
  • DESTUSER - The WRITER field is populated from the ‘user’ value of the ‘dest.user’ Destination definition in CA Deliver.
Syntax:
WRITER=ASIS/DESTUSER
Default:
ASIS
