    01.The internal command to process the Add Element from the RSE
       view was not being recognized.
    02.In some cases, the OUTPUT elements were not being selected
       from the component list response.
    03.When using CA Endevor SCM R17/R18, an 0C4 abend may happen
       during internal special list processing.
    04.The "Package statuses" column is not populated when opening
       the CA Endevor Packages from the Fields Table View.
    05.The way that variable record length elements was being
       identified was not always producing the correct results.
    06.The record format and length of the element was not properly
       determined in some cases, causing the wrong record length to
       be used when extracting the element for viewing in the
       editor.
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.The RDz Endevor RAM needs to be changed to recognize the Add
       Element from RSE view request.
    02.The RDz Endevor RAM needs to be changed to select the OUTPUT
       components in those cases.
    03.RAM load modules compiled with Endevor R14-R16 libraries
       have API issues when working with Endevor R17/R18. The RDz
       Endevor RAM needs to be changed to address the compatibility
       issue with the CA Endevor R17/18.
    04.The IBM RDz Endevor integration has been modified to ensure
       that the "Package statuses" column is populated.
    05.The RDz Endevor RAM needs to be changed to better identify
       variable length record elements.
    06.The RDz code was modified to properly get the record format
       and length of the element that is being edited.
