When applying maintenance you may want to do only HIPERs, this can be accomplished by using a certain SOURCEID in the RECEIVE and APPLY.
How can I receive and apply only HIPERS?
Each PTF is identified using SMP/E ++ASSIGN statements. The following SOURCEID(s) can be found within the PTFS, CAPyymm, HIPER, PRP, and SPE:
|CAPyymm||Identifies that the PTF is part of preventative maintenance where yymm represents year and month that the PTF was created|
|HIPER||Identifies that the PTF resolves a High Impact or Pervasive problem|
|PRP||Identifies that the PTF resolves a PTF in Error|
|SPE||Identifies that the PTF contains a small programming enhancement|
|SPE-AFnn||Identifies that the PTF contains a Product Feature developed under the Agile methodology (where nn represents the number of the feature) on an Incremental Release.|
Please review the following example JCL to RECEIVE and APPLY only HIPERs:
//SMPEAPP EXEC PGM=GIMSMP
//SMPCSI DD DISP=SHR,DSN=* YOUR CSI *
//SMPHOLD DD DISP=SHR,DSN=* PTFHOLD DATASET *
//SMPPTFIN DD DISP=SHR,DSN=* PTFLIB DATASET *
//SMPCNTL DD *
