Use these instructions to add a defined step program as a step within a procedure. You can specify the sequence in which the step is performed within the procedure and other runtime attributes for the step. The procedure to which a step is being added cannot be active when adding a step.

A required step program can be added as a step only once within a procedure. Step programs that are required steps for shipped default procedures of type *SWTPLAN or *SWTUNPLAN cannot be added as steps in procedures of type *USER. Step programs shipped for data protection report procedures (CRTDPRDIR, CRTDPRFLR, and CRTDPRLIB) cannot be added to any other procedure.

For more information about adding and customizing step programs, see Working with step programs.

For more information about procedures and step programs that are shipped with MIMIX, see Shipped procedures and step programs.

Do the following from the management system:

  1. Display the existing steps of the procedure. See Displaying the steps within a procedure.

  2. The Work with Steps display appears. Type 1 (Add) next to the blank line at the top of the list and press Enter.

  3. The Add Step (ADDSTEP) command appears with the procedure and application group preselected. Do the following:

    1. At the Step program name prompt, specify the step program that you want this step to run.

    2. The default value *LAST for the Sequence number prompt will add the step at the end of the procedure using a number that is 100 greater than the current last sequence number in the procedure. If you want the step to run in a different relative order within the procedure, specify a different value.
    3. Specify the values you want for other runtime attributes in the remaining prompts. Default values will allow asynchronous jobs to process the step without waiting for other jobs reach the step, and will quit if a job ends in error. For details about the resulting behavior of other values for Action before step, Action on error, and State see Attributes of a step.
    4. To add the step, press Enter.
