Issue:
Trying to audit certain transactions on the CICS Bypass List by entering the following command: 

TSS MODIFY(FAC(CICCxxx=BYPADD(xxxx+A))

where 'xxxx' is a transaction id.

After starting the transaction, nothing shows up in the TSSUTIL audit report for it.
 
Cause:
Bypass list auditing feature is not turned on.
Resolution:
Auditing of the bypass list needs to be turned on. 

To turn it on dynamically, issue the following command: 

TSS MODIFY FACILITY(facilityname=BYPLIST(AUDIT)) 

which is documented in section "Audit the Bypass List Transactions and Adjust User Permissions"

Since MODIFY commands are only temporary and go away when you recycle TSS or IPL, you will need to add the following to your TSS parameter file:: 

FACILITY(facilityname=BYPLIST(AUDIT))
