Walk-Through: ID Management

New for this release, requestors may optionally supply specify a CICS terminal identification (termid) to be used in session communication with the CICS 3270 applications. This is especially helpful for communicating with applications that make processing decisions based on termid. The method for supplying termid in this release is to install the supplied Attachmate Management & Control Services and then to use its ID Manager to create desired pools of termids. Then, if a requesting application wants to specify a termid, it simply includes the desired pool name in the connect request to the API, and the requestor will check out an available termid from that pool. Upon disconnect, the requestor will return the termid back into the pool with ID Manager. If a specific termid id desired, setting up a pool of one termid will accomplish unique termid designation.
