Fault entry expiration control

To prevent premature deletion of fault entries, these can be locked either indefinitely, or for a specified number of days following the initial creation of a fault entry. Either way, this deletion is controlled via the Lock Flag, which can be viewed or modified using the Fault Entry Information display (for details, see Viewing fault entry information).

The Lock Flag can also be set by a user exit via the ENV.LOCK_FLAG field (for details, see ENV - Common exit environment information).
