Introduction:

I found this sentence in the installation guide:
Important! For OPSVIEW to be fully functional, the OPS/MVS load library must be in a STEPLIB or in the LINKLIST.

Question:

For OPSVIEW, I would like to know which function or option, may be not functional if the OPS/MVS load Library is not in the STEPLIB or not in the LINKLIST.
 

Answer:

OPSVIEW access will just be about totally useless if the TSO user does not have access to the CA OPS/MVS load library via a STEPLIB or LINKLIST. So, if the library is not accessible, most options of OPSVIEW will fail.
