Issue:
While upgrading Plan Analyzer to Release 19.0 or 20.0 our tester has noticed that when they select SD option on the CA Plan Analyzer Main Menu panel it is launching the SDSF panel instead of the PPA Source Database Maintenance panel. We know this is because SD command is already defined in TSO/ISPF as a shortcut to SDSF.
Resolution:
CA Plan Analyzer is shipped with our own ISPF command table called RCCMDS. The table defines some of our application specific commands. This command conflict can be fixed by adding these commands to the table. To be safe, first make a back up copy of member
RCCMDS in the HLQ.CDBATBL0 data set. Then use option ISPF 3.9, the Command Table Utility, to update this table by specifying RC in the Application ID, and adding an entry for the SD command with a PASSTHRU action as show below:
SD 0 PASSTHRU

The PASSTHRU action will pass the command to CA application resolving the command conflict.
