SYSAREA parameter - IBM-JCL

Parameter Type

Keyword, optional

Purpose

Use the SYSAREA (system area) parameter to indicate whether the system should reserve an area on each page of printed output for the security label. The security label represents a security level and categories as defined to RACF.

Note: When a system area is reserved for a security label, the system shifts the printed output on each page. You cannot print output data in the system area.

1.Syntax

SYSAREA= {YES} {Y } {NO } {N }

2.Subparameter Definition

YES
Requests that a system area be reserved on each page of printed output for the security label. This parameter can also be coded as Y.

NO
Requests that a system area not be reserved on each page of printed output for the security label. This parameter can also be coded as N.

3.Defaults
If you do not code the SYSAREA parameter, an installation default determines if a system area is reserved for a security label.

4.Relationship to Other Parameters
Use the SYSAREA parameter with the DPAGELBL parameter on the OUTPUT JCL statement and the SECLABEL parameter on the JOB statement as instructed by your security administrator. The SYSAREA parameter can be coded with any other OUTPUT JCL statement parameters.

5.Example of the SYSAREA Parameter

//JOBB JOB 1,’JIM WOOSTER’,SECLABEL=CONF . . //PRESRPT OUTPUT DPAGELBL=YES,SYSAREA=YES,FORMS=CSEC

In this example, the security label CONF (specified on the SECLABEL parameter of the JOB statement) is printed on each page of printed output in the system area. The sysout data set is printed on forms named CSEC.
