Running Z Data Tools with APF-authorization

In batch mode, Z Data Tools can run APF-authorized or non APF-authorized. Z Data Tools cannot run APF-authorized under ISPF. You make Z Data Tools authorized by adding HFM.SHFMMOD1 to your site-specific IEAAPFxx or PROGxx member in SYS1.PARMLIB.

  1. If you are running Z Data Tools APF-authorized in batch mode, and you want to run Z Data Tools batch jobs using COBOL copybook templates, then you MUST also authorize the COBOL compiler library. If you do not do this, you will receive an ABENDS306 from the batch job.
  2. If you plan to access source code in a library management system that does not provide a SUBSYS interface, then you cannot run Z Data Tools APF-authorized. For information about accessing source code in an LMS without a SUBSYS interface, see Accessing source code in an LMS without SUBSYS interface.

To activate any changes you have made to SYS1.PARMLIB members, either restart your system, or use the appropriate commands for your site to dynamically activate the changes.
