Tip: Search CA MICS "static" documentation with browser

  • 1.  Tip: Search CA MICS "static" documentation with browser

    Apparently not everyone received notification many months ago -- CA opened up the CA.COM support/documentation "general knowledge" resources, which includes software product documentation. For MICS, the caveat is that this documentation flavor obviously does not reflect individual MICS environment system / file / database tailoring nor would it include any locally-developed field-developed applications (FDAs, previously known as user components).


    So, for illustration purposes, say you want to review the CA MICS CICS component administration documentation on the CICOPS member -- an Internet search (one limited to just CA.COM domain/website) might look like:


    INTERNET search argument:  mics cicops 12.9  site:ca.com


    Note that the SITE: parameter/keyword causes a filtered-search to occur.


    It may not be suitable for some types of CA MICS technical documentation, but for those guide-sections that are "static" and do not get generated with "cccCGEN" at the site, or for other CA software products, it may be a productivity tool to expedite a DOC Look-up.
