Allow SSID to be passed i...

We have 4 Datasharing groups and each DSG has 2 accelerators. We have developed ISPF tools to create a standard (native) load job and our users have become accustomed to navigating these ISPF panels. Now that we are introducing IDAA Loader we would like to incorporate the IDAA Loader panels into the existing system of panels. The DSG selection panels precede the current load selection panels. So we would prefer to do the same with the IDAA Loader panels. However, once the user selects the DSG (via our custom panels) and we present the IDAA Loader panels, they will need to select the DSG again in these panels. If they make the wrong selection, or forget to make the right one, they could be loading TEST when they mean to load PRODUCTION or the reverse of this. Therefore I would like to provide the Datasharing Group name to the panels and that DSG should be used as the DB2 SSID in the HLOLPRIM panel. If possible to include SERVER ID as passed data, that would be nice.
