IZ65446: Deleting a CICS TS Queue in CICS Explorer deletes all TS Queues

Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • You are using the CICS Explorer connected to a CICS TS v4.1
    system. You are browsing the TS Queues active in a region and
    you delete one. After selecting and deleting it, the selected TS
    Queue disappears from view in the CICS Explorer. However if you
    refresh the view, all TS Queues will disappear because instead
    of deleting just the TS Queue selected, all TS Queues in that
    scope have been deleted. A check of that region via CEMT or
    CICSPlex SM's WUI interface will confirm this.
    

Local fix

  • Until this APAR has been applied, do not delete any TS Queues
    using the CICS Explorer.

    ****************************************************************
    TS Queues were being browsed in the CICS Explorer by opening the
    "TS Queues" view (accessible from the menu: Operations > Queues
    > TS Queues).
    
    A single TS Queue was deleted by right-clicking on one of them
    and selecting "Delete" from the context menu. The TS Queue
    disappears from the the view as it has been deleted succesfully.
    However, refreshing the view shows that all other TS Queues in
    the current scope have also been deleted unexpectedly.
    
    To delete the TS Queue the delete TS Queue command constructed
    failed to include the filter attributes correctly. This meant
    when it was sent to CICS through the CICS Management Interface
    (CMCI) all TS Queues were deleted in the current scope (region
    or plex).
    

Problem conclusion

  • The filter attributes on the delete TS Queue command have been
    set to only delete the selected TS Queue and not all the other
    TS Queues in scope.
    
    This APAR has been released via version 1.0.0.3 of CICS
    Explorer, and is available via the update-site and Fix Central.
