How to activate the AUTOPROC feature when using CA JCLCheck Workload Automation in ISPF?

 

Answer:  

The CA JCLCheck WA AUTOPROC feature enables CA JCLCheck WA to access the cataloged procedure libraries that are defined to your JES for procedure expansion.  This is necessary when processing JCL members containing PROC and INCLUDES statements.  If AUTOPROC is disabled, procedure libraries must manually be defined to DD name SYSPROC.   Below are the procedures to add AU (AUTOPROC);

 

Executing CA JCLCheck WA from within an ISPF Edit session using command JCK, EJCK, or EDCHEK:

  • Add option "AU" to the EDCHKDD control options data set.  The EDCHKDD options data set must be allocated prior to executing CA JCLCheck WA.  TSO command ISRDDN may be used to view a list of allocated DD names and their corresponding data set names.

  • Execute command EJCK with option "AU" as a parameter, e.g., EJCK AU

 

Executing CA JCLCheck WA from the CA JCLCheck WA SPF MENU:

  • Set variable 'AUTOP' to Y in CA JCLCheck WA clist JCKUSR.

 

The AUTOPROC option can also be set globally by adding option 'AU' to the JCLDFLT table. This table is updated and activated by CA JCLCheck WA usermod MZ1nn24 (where nn is the release, for example MZ1C024 is for r12.0).

The AUTOPROC option is mutually exclusive with runtime option "PROC(ddname)". When both options are specified, PROC(ddname) is ignored.

The AUTOPROC option is disabled when used with runtime option PREVEX.

The AUTOPROC option requires that CA JCLCheck WA runs as an APF-authorized task.
