How to list all Users in TPX which have Session Definitions with an ACB Mask

  • 1.  How to list all Users in TPX which have Session Definitions with an ACB Mask

    The following TPXBATCH-Job creates a list of users, their sessions and the content of field "ACB Mask" for each session:

     

    //<jobcard>
    //STEP1    EXEC  <name_of_tpx>,VNODE='*BATCH*'                            
    //EXTFILE  DD    DSN='aaa.bbb.ccc',DISP=SHR                     
    //RPTFILE  DD    SYSOUT=*
    //SYSIN    DD    *
    EXTRACT GIVING(EXTFILE) USER AND ALL SESSIONS (UIDXNAME(--------))
       SET RTITLE1 ' USER     - USERSESS - ACB MASK '
       SET RTITLE2 ' ==============================='
       REPORT GIVING(RPTFILE) USING(EXTFILE)
           ((' &UIDXNAME' '-' ' &UENTUSER' '-' ' &UENTACB '))       

     

    Take care to

    a) specify 'aaa.bbb.ccc' as a dataset defined with FB and LRECL=2000 to be able to save the extraced record of ADMIN2.

    b) You might specify a file with FB and LRECL=80 instead of SYSOUT=* for the RPTFILE where the result is stored

     

    Here is the resulting list. The third column contains the name of the ACB Mask if one is specified for that session of the user.

     

    USER     - USERSESS - ACB MASK
    ===============================
    BIR01    -          -         
             - CICS1    - CICSMASK
             - CICS2    - CICSMASK
    FRA01    -          -         
             - CICS1    - CICSMASK
             - NMTIP12  -         
             - STAR     -         
             - TPXADMIN -         
             - TPXDEMO  -         
             - TPXMAIL  -         
             - TPXNOTES -
             - TSO      - TSO1
    STE01    -          -         
             - CICS1    - CICSMASK        
             - NMTIP12  -         
             - STAR     -

     

     

    If you do not want to get the complete list (which might be huge) you can influence that by specifying

     

    EXTRACT GIVING(EXTFILE) USER AND ALL SESSIONS (UIDXNAME(A-------))

     

    or

     

    EXTRACT GIVING(EXTFILE) USER AND ALL SESSIONS (UIDXNAME(DE------))

    If you are unfamiliar with TPXBATCH the string

    (UIDXNAME(A-------))

    might look strange. The explanation is that you refer to all User Names (stored in variable UIDXNAME) starting with the character 'A'. The dash '-' represents any character.
