Introduction:

Specify whether you want to disable continuous background fetching.

Question:

We would like to make the Profile setting "Run in CONTINUOUS or PAUSE mode" be set globally instead of setting this in an individual profile.

 

Environment:
Z/OS
Answer:

The "Run in CONTINUOUS or PAUSE mode" is an option in RC/Update specifically the Edit option.

In the hilvl.CDBAPARM dataset there is a RCEDIT member in which you will want to set the following parameter:

BFDCMODE (Y)

Values:

"Y" Disable continuous background fetching globally for all users. Pause mode fetching is active.

"N" (Default) Do not disable continuous background fetching globally. The background fetching mode is controlled through RC Edit profile.

 

 

When using the EP(Edit Parmlib) editing the RCEDIT member the edit screen field to look at is :

 

Disable continuous fetch.........> N
