Information Management for z/OS FLOW Command

Technote (troubleshooting)


Using the FLOW command in IBM Tivoli Information Management for z/OS (InfoMan) to determine panel flow


You may be having something unexpected occur in one of your InfoMan processes or panel flows

Diagnosing the problem

One of the InfoMan commands that can be used to determine where things are not occurring as expected is the FLOW (FL) command. To use this command, access the InfoMan panel where the problems begin to occur, then Enter FL (short for FLOW) before you invoke the process that goes wrong. This will turn on panel FLow which shows you all the panels you are flowing through. Interrogate the panel flow to determine where things are incorrect. Then use PMF (Panel Modification Facility) to update the panel and correct the issue.

Resolving the problem

Resolve the problem by correcting the panel that was causing the issue
