How to delete old packages that are not in-edit and none of the approvers still exist?

Solution:

You have 2 options:

  1. Set BATCHID=0 and make the JOBNAME (based on UIDLOC values) match any of the non-existent approver userids.

  2. Set up a special C1DEFLTS where PKGSEC=MIGRATE or ESI. Then modify the BC1TNEQU table and racf/acf2/topsecret to process ESI rules for Package_Options. Migrate will do an ESI call only if you are not an approver to see if you are allowed to perform the action anyway.
    ESI will always do an ESI call regardless of "approver status".
