Troubleshooting IMS Analysis

The following are common problems you may encounter when performing IMS Analysis:
  • Missing root programs. Root programs are called from the operating system and are passed a PSB that is passed in turn to any called programs. The relationship with the root program is established in the JCL for batch programs or in a system definition file for online programs. If you are missing the JCL or system definition files, you can create them manually, as described in "Mapping Root Programs to PBS in JCL or System Definition Files."
  • All content is present but no relationships are created from programs to IMS segments. Try setting the IMS Environment to Yes in Project Options > Verification > Source Type: COBOL File. Also, see "Restrictions on IMS Support" for coding patterns that are not supported by IMS Analysis.
