Z Abend Investigator and CICS global user exits

If Z Abend Investigator is installed in the CICS® XPCABND global user exit (GLUE), and transaction abend analysis completes successfully (either an LE or non-LE application), then Z Abend Investigator passes the appropriate return code to CICS to suppress the transaction dump. The implication of this passing is that any subsequent dump-related CICS GLUE, for example XDUREQ, is then not invoked by CICS.

If your environment is such that you require subsequent CICS dump GLUEs to always be called, or if you require CICS transaction dumps to always be written, you should do one of the following:
  • Code a Z Abend Investigator End Processing user exit and set the ENV.SUPPRESS_DUMP flag to 'N'.
  • Set the RetainCICSDump option to ALL. See RetainCICSDump for more details.
