Error description

  • Currently when creating a deployment operation in the Deployment
    task of z/OSMF, the configuration to describe the target
    software instance must be specified from scratch.  A better
    solution is to allow a user to reuse the configuration
    information from a prior completed deployment operation.

    * USERS AFFECTED: All users of z/OSMF Software Deployment.     *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Allow a user to create a new deployment *
    *                      that uses the saved configuration from  *
    *                      a previous deployment. And provide      *
    *                      granular control over which users can   *
    *                      view and modify Deployment task         *
    *                      objects.                                *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Currently when creating a deployment operation in the Deployment
    task of z/OSMF, the configuration to describe the target
    software instance must be specified from scratch.  Support
    provided in this APAR allows a user to reuse the configuration
    information from a prior completed deployment operation, thus
    saving the user from having to manually enter the target
    software instance information again.  This is accomplished by
    using a new Copy action for a Deployment object.
    
    The default security profiles defined by the z/OSMF
    configuration process allow authorized users of the Deployment
    task equal access to view, create, modify, and delete all
    objects within that task.  This APAR provides the capability for
    your installation to refine these authorizations and control
    individual user access to the objects in the Deployment task.
    For example, you can create controls that allow a specific user
    or groups of users to create and modify certain software
    instances and deployment operations, and yet prevent other users
    from viewing or modifying those objects.
    

Problem conclusion
