Available commands

In addition to the commands listed in Manipulating your view of the data, the following primary command is available on this panel:

The line commands you can use with a list of catalog entries are:

AFP
Displays AFP (LIST3820) data using the Z Data Tools AFP utility.
ALTER (A)
Lets you alter the parameters for the selected entry. A panel is displayed on which you can change parameters for the entry, as described in Managing catalog entries.

To run the ALTER command in batch, first select the Batch execution option on the Catalog Services panel

BROWSE (B)
If the selected entry is an OAM object collection or a catalog, invokes the appropriate Z Data Tools list option (Object Directory List or Catalog Services); otherwise, invokes Browse.
COPY (C)
Copies the selected entry. Invokes the Copy Utility (3.3) with the "from" data set prefilled to the selected data set.
DEFINE (DEF)
Lets you define a new entry that is similar to the selected entry. A panel is displayed on which you enter the name of the new entry. You can also change the parameters (copied from the existing entry), as described in Managing catalog entries.

To run the DEFINE command in batch, first select the Batch execution option on the Catalog Services panel

DELETE (DEL)
Deletes the selected entry.

To run the DELETE command in batch, first select the Batch execution option on the Catalog Services panel

EDIT (ED)
Invokes Edit (option 2).
EXTENTS (EX)
For a data set entry, lists the statistics and extent information in the catalog.
INFO (I)
Displays the Non-VSAM Entry Detail panel or VSAM Entry Detail panel. Synonymous with LIST. If entered for a catalog, reinvokes catalog services to list the contents of the catalog. For all other catalog entries, displays the details and, for VSAM entries, also statistics and allocation information. The information displayed is the same as would be displayed for the selected entry using the information service from the entry panel.
LIST (L)
If the selected entry is a catalog, invokes Catalog Services for that catalog; otherwise, lists the parameters for the selected entry. Synonymous with INFO.
MEMBER (M)
If entered for a library data set entry, displays a member list.
PRINT (P)
Invokes Print Utility (option 3.2).
RECALL (REC)
If the selected entry has been migrated or archived, this command recalls the data set.
RENAME (R)
This is a synonym for Alter with non-VSAM data sets and it works identically. For VSAM data sets it invokes a separate VSAM Entry Rename panel.
VIEW (V)
Invokes AFP Print Browse (option 3.7) for non-VSAM data sets.
Note: Only use this command for data sets that contain data in Advanced Function Printing (LIST3820) format.

Line commands work differently according to the type of catalog entry. Table 1 shows the line commands that are available.

Note:
  1. A blank space means that the line command is not available.
  2. The word “yes” means that the line command is available.
  3. Represents the types: CLUST, DATA, ESDS, INDEX, KSDS, LDS, RRDS, and VRRDS. “CLUST” is only shown for a base component that has a DATA or INDEX component catalog error.
  4. You can delete a cluster, but the deletion attempt might fail if the cluster is large or complicated (for example, with more than 1 AIX or more than 20 volsers per component).
  5. Object Directory List (option 6.1).
  6. Is only successful if the path is defined over a base cluster rather than an alternate index.
  7. Catalog Services is invoked again to list the entries in a catalog.
