Knowledge Doc: What needs to be considered when trying to create a relationship for the call of a user program from JCL?


Within Job Control Language (JCL) it is possible to call a system program to execute a user program.

Enterprise Analyzer (EA) can trap the call to the system routine, but how do configure EA to detect that a user program is being called by the system program?

Normally, when a system program is called from JCL, the user program to be executed is passed as parameter to the system program via in-line or actual control cards.

As part of the EA installation a file called legacy.xml is supplied and this is a configuration file for EA.

This text file can be modified to tell EA how to extract the user program name from the parameters that are passed to the system program.

This is covered in the advanced help topic “Detecting Programs Started by Driver Utilities”.
