How to find the CICS version?

Post by Neeraj N » Fri Nov 10, 2017 12:49 pm


Is there a way to find which CICS version we are using our own? Or we just need to ask it to support always.

goggling with transaction to display the cics version will return some useful links...

but beware... using what is suggested there might cause a security violation for using a transaction You are not allowed to

if You have the need to know Your support will be happy to tell You

When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort 8-)

You could also look at the CICS logs on SDSF. At startup CICS should write a message to the log saying which version it is.
