    You may be aware of this CA Technologies (YouTube) Educate video which covers how to access Mainframe Product Compatibility and Lifecycle information: CA Mainframe Compatibility and Lifecycle Info

    CA Mainframe Compatibility and Lifecycle Info
    When you upgrade or install mainframe software, you need to know requirements, software levels - a whole host of information. But where is it? You have access to whole host of information on CA Support Online! Check out this video to see the easiest way to get to it quickly!

    Due to changes in the support portal pages after the Broadcom acquisition the Alerts section is no longer available on the portal home page and the way to access the relevant information is now as follows:
    Go to the Portal PRODUCT INFORMATION page: https://casupport.broadcom.com/product-information.html
    There is a link for CA Mainframe Installation and Maintenance Tools
    On that page are the links for CA Mainframe Compatibilities and Release and Support Lifecycle Dates

    Hope that helps.

    Hi Phil,
    Yes the steps I listed at the top of this page should still be valid unless you are seeing some transient problems opening any of the links.

    Regards,

    Lynn
