Question:  

I am running the ETCLNRUL executable REXX script. What does NOLIST NOVERIFY parameters mean in the command files?

Answer:  

NOLIST and NOVERIFY are ETCLNRUL parameters that are passed on the ACF2 ACFNRULE utility that does the actual delete of the rule entry.

Sample Command file entry:

    000001 ETCLNRUL KEY(VH99NK1) TYPE(TPD) - 
    000002 DEL ( -                              
    000003 UID(X1********27R46) ALLOW-         
    000004 ) NOLIST NOVERIFY   

ETCLNRUL is an executable REXX script used to perform rule cleanup. ETCLNRUL calls the ACF2 ACFNRULE utility.

NOLIST and NOVERIFY are ACFNRULE parameters which are described as follows.

[LIST | NOLIST]
Specifies whether the rule set is listed upon compilation. This listing is sent either to SYSPRINT (for a batch job) or
to the terminal (if run as a TSO command).

[VERIFY | NOVERIFY]
Requests that the user is prompted for rule deletion. After listing the rules to delete, ACFNRULE asks for a YES or
NO to actually delete the rules. If the user specifies NO, ACFNRULE terminates. The VERIFY function is not available
in the batch environment.
