Description:

CA-ACF2 journals each update to the Rule database for recovery purposes. This report formats some of the information in the SMF record to show recent update activity to the database.
CA ACF2 provides a sample report named REPORTS in ACF2.SAMPJCL - this JCL will run ACFRPTPP (preprocessor) and then many of the standard report programs including the ACFRPTRL report. It does not provide simple JCL to only run one report program.

The ACFRPTRL report parameters can be specified using one of these methods:

The PARM parameter of the EXEC statement in the JCL or the SYSIN DD.

Solution:

The ACFRPTRL report uses standard CA-ACF2 report JCL for batch submission as shown in the following two examples.

Example 1 Using PARM statement for report parameters.

//REPORT  EXEC PGM=ACFRPTRL,PARM=('TITLE(SAMPLE ACFRPTRL)',   
//       'DETAIL,CHANGES')                                    
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                        
//* THE FOLLOWING DDS SHOULD POINT TO THE SMF DATASETS        
//RECMAN1  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYS1.MAN1                          
//RECMAN2  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYS1.MAN2                          
//RECMAN3  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYS1.MAN3                          
//* 

Example 2 Using SYSIN file for report parameters.

//REPORT  EXEC PGM=ACFRPTRL                             
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                  
//* THE FOLLOWING DDS SHOULD POINT TO THE SMF DATASETS  
//RECMAN1  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYS1.MAN1                    
//RECMAN2  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYS1.MAN2                    
//RECMAN3  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYS1.MAN3                    
//SYSIN    DD   *                                       
TITLE(SAMPLE ACFRPTRL)                                  
DETAIL                                                    
CHANGES                                              
//*                                                     

DD statements
 RECxxxxx  These ddnames identify the files containing the input SMF records. ACFRPTRL accepts one SMF input file per ddname. Do not concatenate SMF input files.

 SYSPRINT
 ACFRPTRL uses the SYSPRINT file for message and summary report output.

Full details on the ACFRPTRL report and all available parameters can be found in "Chapter 13: ACFRPTRL-Rule-ID Modification Log" of the CA-ACF2 Security for z/OS Report and Utilities Guide.
