APAR status

  • Closed as new function.

Error description

  • There is currently no print capability for Canzlog data, which
    makes serviceability difficult and requires customers to use
    NETLOG for audit purposes if they want an easily readable log.
    Note: This function is intended for full function NetView users.

    ****************************************************************
    Although there is a section entitled 'Printing the Canzlog Log
    (Using the Canzlog API)' in IBM NetView for z/OS knowledge
    center describes a method of how to print Canzlog log, users are
    not satisfied with the limited information and the simple
    example in that section. They said in the past before IBM
    NetView for z/OS has Canzlog feature, DSIPRT is very useful and
    convenient to print the NetView log, but now for Canzlog, they
    don't have a easy way any more. They are eager to have a new
    feature in IBM NetView for z/OS for Canzlog Print.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix

Comments

  • IBM NetView for z/OS provides a new functionality for Canzlog
    Print. It enables user to print Canzlog messages by issuing
    PRINT command in either NCCF console, BROWSE window, or Canzlog
    Panel. The required parameters for PRINT command can be
    pre-configured in CNMSTYLE statements, therefore user can issue
    PRINT command without any parameters. User can specify a filter
    specification, output data set, prefixes, message details along
    with the PRINT command directly as well. NVINFO command is
    enhanced to print Canzlog messages. If user specifies both a
    data set name and a filter specification in the parameter of
    NVINFO command, the Canzlog messages filtered with the filter
    specification will be printed to the output data set as well as
    the original NVINFO information. This new feature is not
    available to IBM Automation Control for z/OS customers.
    
    The following are documentation changes that are being made to
    the IBM NetView for z/OS library for Canzlog Print function,
    which is not available to IBM automation Control for z/OS
