Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz
    Attempts to use a Menu manager with variable substitution may
    fail if the menu manager is invoked from the editor and the
    file was opened from the zOS project view.
    
    When a user does a right-click in the editor that was opened
    from the z/OS Project view, the source object is of type
    LogicalValidResource.  The Menu Manager JCL Variable
    Substitution code understands objects of type LZOSDataSetMember,
    
    LZOSDataSet, MVSFileResource and PhysicalValidResource, but not
    objects of type LogicalValidResource.
    
    
    Changes in APAR PI26565 were made to handle objects of type
    PhysicalValidResource.  In this case, the object is of type
    LogicalValidResource and is not being handled correctly.
    

Local fix

  • You have 3 choices that will work:
    Open file from Remote Systems View
    Use Menu Manager from Remote Systems View
    Use Menu Manager from zOS Projects view
    

Problem summary

  • Files opened in Editor via zOS Projects view fail to pass
    variables to Menu Manager
    

Problem conclusion

  • The editor files are of type LogicalValidResource, and those
    types were not being handled.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for z Systems V9.5.1.2 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
