SSIDEXCLUDELIST - Generic namesc

It would be very helpful to have the possibility to code some generic names in the Classic Change Data Capture for IMS z/OS in the parameter field SSIDEXCLUDELIST.

In some cases, customers need to code several hundred or thousands of names which or begin with the same character or contains identical characters.

This feature would provide a big economy of time to manage this.

For example, coding :

- C% or C*

- %C% or *C*

- C%%%%%%% or C**
