UIEBFREQ
Specifies whether or not the user can override the value specified for the IEBFREQ parameter.
N
The user cannot override the IEBFREQ parameter.
Y
The user can override the IEBFREQ parameter.

When you specify two values in parentheses, separated by a comma, the first value is used for BMP mode and the second value is used for DLI mode. When you specify a single value, this is used for both BMP and DLI modes.

If you specify UIEBFREQ=N for BMP mode:
  • The Batch Edit checkpoint frequency field on the BMP Mode Options panel is protected.
  • CHKPFREQ= statements in the HFMIMSIN input of Batch Edit jobs run in BMP mode are ignored.
  • No CHKPFREQ= statements are included in the JCL generated by the Batch Edit dialog when the Batch Edit is to run in BMP mode.
If you specify UIEBFREQ=N for DLI mode:
  • The Batch Edit checkpoint frequency field on the DLI Mode Options panel is protected.
  • CHKPFREQ= statements in the HFMIMSIN input of Batch Edit jobs run in DLI mode are ignored.
  • No CHKPFREQ= statements are included in the JCL generated by the Batch Edit dialog when the Batch Edit is to run in DLI mode.

This parameter is optional. If it is not specified on the HFM1POPI macro statement, ZDT/IMS uses either the value specified on the HFM1POPD macro statement (if specified on that statement), or "(N,Y)" (otherwise).
