Defining ZDT/IMS in an ISPF command table

ISPF supports four different command tables where you can define an ISPF command to invoke ZDT/IMS:
  • Application command table
  • User command table
  • Site command table
  • System command table

You can use the ISPF Command Table Utility (option 3.9) to create or change a command table that is not currently in use (the system command table, ISPCMDS, is always in use). When you add a command for ZDT/IMS to one of these command tables, you can invoke ZDT/IMS from any ISPF panel without prefixing the command with TSO.

Add the following entry to a command table to enable ZDT/IMS to be run from any ISPF panel by entering ZI on the command line.

Verb ZI
Action SELECT PANEL(HFM1ST00) OPT(&ZPARM) SCRNAME(HFMIMS) SUSPEND NEWAPPL(HFM1)
Description Z Data Tools IMS™ component

To invoke ZDT/IMS with LIBDEFs, see Example 2. ISPF command table with LIBDEF invocations.
