We're playing with a proof of concept to demand an ESP job to approve (maybe) and submit an Endevor pkg containing CICS modules mid-IPL. Since we are just in the testing phase didnt want to mess with adding ESP's id to our acf2 external approver group or all the move to prod esi profiles. To that end I whipped up ENUXSITE to change c1deflts from BATCHID 1 to BATCHID 0 and pick up the batch analyst's id from the jobcard. The O703 userid is working great for teh submit action of an already approved pkg, approval of a pkg with an internal approver group (for the test it contained only ESP (TENXP) and Batch Analyst (O703) ids. The APPROVE action fails when using an ACF2 external approver group. PKG is not available for Approve action. Is it because ACF2 is an odd duck? I can't remember the name of the control block involved, but any thoughts on the subject would be greatly appreciated.
