Description :

If you use ACF2 for external IDMS security, ACF2 security definitions are necessary to allow canceling a task running on a remote IDMS CV.

Solution :

Note : All of the following definitions are examples and can vary by installation. Other parameters can be selected for auditing, performance and other installation-specific needs.

Follow these steps:

  1. Define the CA@IDMSI resource class.

    Example :
    ACF
    SET CONTROL(GSO)
    INSERT CLASMAP.IDMSI RESOURCE(CA@IDMSI) RSRCTYPE(IDM) ENTITYLN(22)

  2. Grant permissions and refresh the class.

    Example :
    ACFNRULE KEY(TASK) TYPE(IDM) ADD(SYSTEM74.OPER UID(userid) SERVICE(UPDATE) ALLOW)
    F ACF2,REFRESH(CLASMAP)

  3. Secure the task code that processes external request units (RHDCNP3S or alternative task codes) to allow canceling a remote task on behalf of a batch program running against the CV.

    Note : For more information about external run unit task codes, see CA IDMS System Generation Guide and CA IDMS System Operations Guide.
