This document will outline the steps needed to define and implement the CA View PDF Archiver.


Steps required to install the CA View PDF Archiver .

  1. 1. The Dynamic JES commands that will temporarily define a sample JES Printer called PRT83 are listed below.
    Change the overrides to the requirements for your site. This collector is using Class and Prmode as the selection criteria. We suggest that these printer definitions are created in the respective z/OS system members so that when the system is IPL'ed , the commands will not need to be re-issued.


  2. A sample proc for the CA View PDF Archiver can be found in member CBRMSPDF in the CVDEPROC library
    The CVDEOPTN library will contain the custom built PDF Indexing members used for indexing the processed PDF document from Jess. An example of the PDF Indexing member called CAHAPDFD is located in the CVDEOPTN LIBRARY.

  3. Create the CA View printer definition

    The printer definition in the PDF Collector FSS PROC is pointed to by a DD statement that matches the printer name (PRT83):


    PRT83 is used and the DD points to member CAHAPDFE in CAI.CVDEOPTN. The following is a sample of what this member might look like:


    INDEXMEM= is a default member name in the PDFINDEX data set that you can use in case you want to accept PDF documents without any PDF indexing requirements. A member can be defined in the PDF index data set for the PDF document and contain no parameters if you wish to control indexing requirements per PDF document.

    If the report has no matching member in the PDFINDEX data set and a member name has not been specified for INDEXMEM or the member name specified does not exist, the report will be processed using the PDF Collector default values and the report will not be indexed.
