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:


Z-Wiki Categories

Dr. Chgman's Z-Wiki categoriesAll items (topics) available within the Z-Wiki area, are classified by category, i.e.:


Temporarily disable FRZ, REV and APR

Sometimes a certain group of ChangeMan ZMF users (like ChangeMan ZMF admins, release managers, …) need to perform a special operation (usually planned, though sometimes unplanned). To do so, it may be that during such operations certain ChangeMan ZMF operations (e.g.: package freeze, package approve, revert to DEV, etc) cannot be used by any ChangeMan ZMF user. Shutting down ChangeMan ZMF entirely obviously is an option. But what about those situations where just shutting down the entire ChangeMan ZMF system (for a few hours or so in the middle of the day?) is not an option?


Release managers

Release managers facilitate the provisioning of correct baselines to be deployed in selected pre-production environments and production environments. Quite often they are also the final approvers of (planned) change packages.


Add restart instructions in Xnode jobs

Browse a component in any CMN/ZMF library

ChangeMan ZMF manages various types of datasets, likes staging libraries, promotion-, production- and baseline liraries, etc. Wouldn't it be great to have some type of browser to just browse (or view) any of these datasets from within a single ISPF panel? Maybe also some related datasets like Xnode DSNs, CMN100 reports, etc.?



Z-Rewards is a way to reward users for performing certain actions within Creating content for is it’s own reward, your selfless distribution of your knowledge can save someone else the pain and suffering of figuring out challenges on their own. But, we think your participation and/or contribution is worth a little something more.


How to earn Z-Rewards

There are a number of ways to earn and accumulate Z-Rewards (and we change it periodically). You have to be a registered user and logged in to get Z-Rewards.


How to exchange Z-Rewards

After you earned and accumulate a certain amount of Z-Rewards, you will be able to exchange these Z-Rewards for other products or services within
