HPU V5.1 - Keep the connection in TSO / DB2 CALL / BATCH / UTILITY / CAF instead of ODBC/RRSAF (the same as HPU V4.3 version) RFE 123074

Communication switches to ODBC / RRSAF instead of DB2CALL. Our environment has the 'Exit' DSN3@ATH (Conections = TSO / DB2CALL / BATCH / UTILITY / CAF) which changes the executor user to DB2GPP in Tracks, Approvals and Production environment.

Use Case

Our production / homologation / Tracks environment has about 170,000 HPU sysins to be changed as a result of switching from DB2Call to RRSAF. This is due to the customization of 'Exit DSN3@ATH' which changes the 'owner' of the table according to the environment.

    Thank you for submitting this enhancement request. While we view all the enhancement requests we receive as valuable and we would like to implement all of them, in an effort to have maximum transparency we are closing the ones that don't currently appear on our two year product roadmap.
