HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Configuring the z/OS access method

HCL Workload Automation launches jobs on an extended agent or a dynamic agent for z/OS workstation. The supported agent for z/OS is defined in a standard HCL Workload Automation workstation definition, which gives it a name and identifies the access method to be used. The extended agent or dynamic agent for z/OS workstation is a workstation definition linked to an instance of the z/OS system.

To launch a job on a supported agent for z/OS workstation, HCL Workload Automation runs the access method, passing it information about the job. The access method communicates with the instance of the z/OS host and monitors the job through completion, writing job progress and status information to the job’s standard list file.
