Q

Is there a way to highlight error messages sent via CICS write operator (z/OS and WTOs)?

I am sending error message WTO via CICS Write Operator. Is there a facility that will allow me to highlight these...

messages?


I had a jolly old time wandering through long-forgotten MVS manuals to refresh my knowledge of how z/OS handles WTOs....and it appears to be exactly the same as it always was.

Consequently, you can only WTO a line of text without any highlighting or extended colour/underlining going on. How it is presented at the operator Console will depends on the DESC number and the Console settings (D MPF) - but the important thing is that an application program cannot supply anything other than normal text.
