Question:

I ran the CA DADS Plus for CICS utility program DADBCNTL to update APPLID option. The update was successful.
Does the UPDATE parameter only modify the specific option specified like APPLID= or would it change any defaults not listed in the request?

Environment:
Z/OS CICS
Answer:

The UPDATE option only modifies-change the specific option for specify in your JCL.

For example, the JCL below will only update the SVC number to 230.

//CNTL     EXEC PGM=DADBCNTL,REGION=700K

//STEPLIB  DD  DSN=DADSPL40.LOADLIB,DISP=SHR

//DADS01   DD  DSN=CICS67.DADS.CONTROL,DISP=SHR

//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=A,DCB=(LRECL=133,RECFM=FBA,BLKSIZE=133)

//SYSIN    DD *

UPDATE

SVC=230
