What's New

  • Concurrent with the z/OS V2R4 Announce, we have made the z/OS V2R4 product documentation available. See the z/OS V2R4 related links below.
  • Take the 2019 IBM z/OS Product Documentation Survey. It contains only nine questions and will take just a few minutes of your time. We use your feedback to continually improve what we deliver. Help us help you!
  • Filtered search is enhanced in the z/OS V2R3 Knowledge Center library. The stand-alone search scope catalog function is now integrated into Knowledge Center. The function is currently available in the z/OS V2R3 library and is planned for expansion to other versions of z/OS content. To give it a try, start with the z/OS V2R3 Knowledge Center landing page and use the "Scope" pull-down on the search dialog box to narrow your search to an element or feature or an individual deliverable within an element or feature.
  • New Content Solutions for IBM Z are available. See the list of new offerings on the IBM Z Content Solutions homepage.
  • LookAt is back. See IBM Z: Look@ Knowledge Center for a prototype of a new version of the popular message look up tool.
  • KC4z plug-ins are available for download through FTP. Visit the new IBM Knowledge Center for z/OS Plug-in Repository. See the Readme for instructions and more information.

  • Download content for use with z/OS Knowledge Center: | V2R4| V2R3| V2R2 | V2R1 |

* Uses the new search scope function integrated into KC (use the scope pull-down above the search dialog)

Adobe Indexed PDF Collections

Adobe Indexed PDF Collections (SC27-8430) contain all the content in a particular release and provide an excellent method for searching for information offline. In addition to containing all the library PDFs, each collection includes an html page that lists all PDFs by title. Each collection, which is packaged as a Windows .zip file, is equipped with an Adobe Acrobat Catalog to provide a full text search mechanism for all content across the collection. To search the content, download the package, unzip the file, then open the included *.pdx file with Adobe Acrobat Reader. (Note that other PDF readers might work but were not tested.) You might need to accept a security warning and then switch to the Search window. Be sure to check out the advanced search options, too.
