Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v9.5.0
    
    Description :
    
    Attempts to use the Menu Manager to pass the variable,
    $projectname, from the PLI editor when the file is opened
    from the zOS Projects view fail with an error stating that
    
    The same MenuManager item works when executed directly from
    the zOS Project view, or from the Remote System view.
    
    All the other variables are well filled such as $name,
    $datasetname and $userid.
    
    The rsecomm.log shows that this vlaue is lost :
    PROJECT=   is displayed instead of PROJECT="value"
    

Local fix

  • Execute the menu manager item directly from either the
    zOS Project view or the Remote Systems view
    

Problem summary

  • Menu Manager variable $projectname was not getting evaluated
    correctly when the menu is invoked from the PL/I Editor context
    menu because the remote edit object (the resource that is being
    edited) was getting set incorrectly when the context menu on the
    artifact in z/OS Projects view is invoked.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
