Introduction:

Exit 2 is the signoff exit. It is called by RHDCFLTR after application resources have been freed and before the call to the #SECSGOF macro to do the actual signoff.

Question:

Which application-level resources are still available to the task when exit 02 (signoff exit) is called?

Environment:
CA-IDMS - all supported releases.
Answer:

Queue and Scratch records attached to the current TCE (task) are freed by RHDCFLTR, as is any storage of type USER - so they will not be accessible from within exit 2.

However, USER-KEPT storage is not freed at that time, so any storage of that type will still be accessible to any code within exit 2.

 

USER-KEPT storage is freed later on in the process by RHDCTSKI.
