Creating z/OS component versions from z/OS UNIX System Services#

To create IBM® z/OS® component versions from z/OS UNIX™ System Services, submit the command from a z/OS UNIX shell.

  1. Open a z/OS UNIX shell.

  2. Use the createzosversion command to create the component version.

    Parameter Required Description
    -c true The name of the component in HCL Launch. The component name can contain only letters, numbers, and spaces.
    -v false The name of the version to create. If a version is not specified, a version name is generated from the current time stamp. The version name can contain only letters, numbers, and spaces.
    -s true The location of the ship list file.
    -verb false To display a trace log, set this parameter to true. If verbose is specified with no value, it is assumed true. This value should always be set to false in all environments, unless additional logging is needed for a specific need. Setting this to true, can cause out of memory errors, if the log generated is immense.
    -o false Full path name of the file where the output of version creation is written.
    -t false The type of the version to create. Set to full to create a full version. Default is incremental.
    -to false Provides the UCD token used to authenticate the UCD server. This token can be created by UCD user who has access to create versions in the corresponding component. If the token is not provided, buztool takes the token from the <agent_home>/conf/> server.tokenvalue to authenticate.

    For example, the following command creates a new version in the CICSModules component: createzosversion -c CICSModules -v fixbug100 -s /u/ucduser/build/shiplist.xml

    If an argument contains spaces, enclose the argument in double quotation marks, as shown in the following example: createzosversion -c "CICS Modules" -v "fixbug 100" -s /u/ucduser/build/shiplist.xml

The content that the ship list file specifies is available in a component in HCL Launch.
