In CICS Explorer decorators (icons) indicating resource status are not available

Technote (troubleshooting)


Decorators are not displayed in CICS Explorer In CICS Explorer resource table views, for instance the Programs view, decorator icons are shown to provide a visual reminder of the resource state. Examples of these are the green tick next to an ENABLED program, or a bundle icon to flag that the resource was installed as part of a bundle.


Decorator icons do not show against attribute columns in resource table views.


The decorators were disabled as part of another piece of work and will be reinstated as part of a future service refresh.

Resolving the problem

The decorators are visual indicators of the underlying data in the resource attributes, so refer to the attributes directly until a service refresh fixes the problem.
