Two separate enhancement requests, but one does not work without the other.


Problem : Using various pseudo command rules to trigger various automated processes/actions, and info responses generated by the rule and sent back to the issuing console via CNNAME() are not 'seen' if the end-user triggers the command from an extended MCS console that uses cart logic to receive its command responses.


Enhancement to CMD rules - create a cmd.cartx (or whatever) environmental variable to store the command cart from the issuing command


Enhancement to Address WTO - new CART keyword (or whatever) to direct message/messages back to command cart that issued command..(Looks like IBM WTO macro supports CART keyword??)


)CMD SHUTCICS                                                           
cmd_cart = cmd.cartx                                                    
consname = cmd.consname                                                 
msgtext  = 'Process to begin CICS shutdown in progress...'              
address WTO                                                             
"Msgid(OPSNOTIFY) Text('"msgtext"') Cnname("consname") CART("cmd_cart")"
return 'ACCEPT'
