Providing application-specific explanations and descriptions

The member IDIHUSRM of the IDI.SIDIDOC1 data set holds user-defined message and abend code explanations, as well as program name descriptions.

The structure of IDIHUSRM is straight-forward. Each item (message explanation, abend code explanation or program description) is identified by a header record, followed by the text to be displayed for that item. The text can be in more than one record. The item is finished by a new header record or the end of the file. Each record is a string. Use a text editor to maintain the items.

Note: If the Fault Analyzer IDIS subsystem is used, then it is necessary to stop and restart the IDIS subsystem in order to include new or changed explanations or descriptions in the in-storage cache. If the restart is not done, then new or changed explanations or descriptions are not found.

Fault Analyzer treats a line in IDIHUSRM that begins with .* as a comment and disregards it. It is not included in the analysis report.
