Question:

How to make all files routed to a particular CA Spool printer to be on hold ?

 

Answer:

There is an option available to make all the incoming files for a particular printer to be placed on hold.

Users will have then the control to manually release them when time is right.
 
Consider using a DESTID to use the FNORDISP keyword to achieve this goal.
For the examples suppose the printer NODE name destination is MYDEST and only files coming in with CLASS=P needs to be placed on hold.
 
The following DESTID uses the FNORDISP=H keyword:
 
DESTID QDEST=MYDEST,QCLASS=P,FNORDISP=H 
 
This setup will make any file for printer MYDEST in CLASS P to be held and once released them they will get printed then purged.
 
Another option is using FNORDISP=L keyword:
 
DESTID QDEST=MYDEST,QCLASS=P,FNORDISP=L
 
Using FNORDISP=L will hold the files as well. When manually released they will be kept and appear with status E in the Files menu:

Please consult the CA Spool Customization Guide for all of options available with keyword DESTID FNORDISP.
