Outdated LTPs, DSNs, entities, ... in appl admin

ChangeMan ZMF 's application administration facilities are yet another amazing, extremely powerful feature. It's flexibility is one of those things what makes it so much fun for a ChangeMan ZMF admin to be working in the ChangeMan ZMF sphere. You can add library types as much as you want, and extremely fast. Same for designing and implementing a library structure (DSNs related to promotion, baselines and production). Or connecting various ChangeMan ZMF functions (like approve, promote, etc) to selected entities in your security system. Etc, Etc. You can even automate many of those things with the XML services available in ChangeMan ZMF.


Outdated user options (or invalid user option values)

User options is one of those great ChangeMan ZMF features (in the product since the beginning), which typically allows any ChangeMan ZMF administrators to fine-tune any staging procedure (which is like a checkin of a source component that needs to be compiled by ChangeMan ZMF also). The actual procedures to compiling components (or variations of compilations) is typically something that differs from any ChangeMan ZMF customer to any other ChangeMan ZMF customers (everybody has their own unique needs and requirements).


Speed up package aging via a CMN/ZMF archive subsystem

The package aging parm is a number of days (set in global admin) that a package should be in BAS status (installed in production) before the meta data of that package (VSAM records stored in CMNPMAST) are allowed to be removed during ChangeMan ZMF housekeeping. The higher this number of days, the more people like IT auditors will like it (they are often the ones who are asking for such high number of days). While many countries have laws that force such data to be kept for (e.g.) 7 years, or even more ...


User defined relationships

Create a SCMBeans solution to make ChangeMan ZMF create and maintain a Bill Of Material for selected (like source) library types, using a technique that was first introduced in AbitMORE SCM for IDMS/ADSO.

This Bill Of Material can then be used:


Add ILODs to like SRC SCRATCHes

When you enter a scratch request of a like source, ChangeMan ZMF may or may not add one or more additional scratch requests to the package automatically.
