IBM documentation states that you can Enable/Disable transactions at CICS region startup using the DFHPLT. But I cannot find an example. I know how to add programs to be executed in the PLT, but how to specify that a specific transaction is to come up Enabled or Disabled is something that I can't seem to find supporting examples.

Can anyone help or point me to some example documentation?

Thanks in advance...

rkelley,

Rusty knowledge, but give this a try

If the SIP has PLTSD=TD, then the following table is assembled as DFHPLTTD.

Code:

DFHPLT TYPE=INITIAL,SUFFIX=TD
*
* The following TRANSACTIONS are disabled at CICS statup
*
         DFHPLT TYPE=ENTRY,PROGRAM=your transaction pgm name1
         DFHPLT TYPE=ENTRY,PROGRAM=your transaction pgm name2
         ....
         DFHPLT TYPE=FINAL
         END

I believe that

DFHPLT TYPE=ENTRY,PROGRAM=your transaction pgm name1
DFHPLT TYPE=ENTRY,PROGRAM=your transaction pgm name2

will simply Execute the specified program, assuming these statements occur prior to a DELIM statement. I don't need the transaction executed, I need it either Disabled or Enabled...

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong...

Thx...

rkelley,

I wasn't clear in my earlier response. Unless the transactions are started automatically at CICS PLT initialization time, you can automatically deactivate your desired transactions/programs if they are running by adding your transaction programs before the DFHDELIM in your CICS shutdown PLT table

So the next time you start up CICS these transactions wont be running.
