Question:
Going in SupportOnline - Download Products in order to download CA OPS/MVS, starting with Release 13.0, is it possible to find 2 distinct entries for the same product version.

- CA OPS/MVS Event Management and Automation for JES2 / JES3 MVS 
- CA OPS/MVS Event Management and Automation for JES2 / JES3 MVS Plus

Is there any  difference between both and how to know for which one a customer is licensed for? 
Environment:
Z/OS - JES2 or JES3 - OPS/MVS (starting from Release 13.0) 
Answer:
Basically CA OPS/MVS Event Management and Automation for JES2/JES3 MVS Plus now includes the following interfaces, options and capabilities in the base product license cost. 

> Interface for CICS 
> Interface for ESI 
> Interface for IMS 
> Automation Point Base 
> Automation Point 3270/5250 Interface 

CA OPS/MVS Event Management and Automation for JES2/JES3 MVS does not include other possible interfaces for a bundled license cost.
The software to do the installation is in both download files, in fact the Pax file referenced in both entries is always the same.
This is a licensing cost distinction for the site. If you do not want to get the bundled license product, you can continue to download the CA OPS/MVS Event Management and Automation for JES2/JES3 MVS product.
We will know what is downloaded and used, based on the cotract signed.
