  • zOSMF Advanced Programming (1.6 MB)
  • z/OSMF not only delivers applications(plugins) with a browser based UI, but also provides several Representative State Transfer (REST) APIs that your application can use to work with system resources and extract system data. The number of z/OSMF REST APIs has grown overtime. We now have the following categories of REST APIs:
    * z/OS data set and file REST interface - to support browse and edit of data set and Unix files, query data set and Unix files as well as retrieving their attributes
    * z/OS jobs REST interface - to do job management such as submit job, hold/release a job, cancel job, query job status, list and retrieve contents of spool files
    * Data persistence services and TSO/E address space services which allow you to build your external z/OSMF applications.
    These two REST services combined with new z/OSMF task "Import Manager" provides an External Application solution which supports user to easily develop and deploy external z/OSMF application.
    * Workflow REST interface - to manage a workflow programmatically from local or remote by z/OSMF application or external application.
    * Topology and Gateway REST interface - to query topology information such as how many sysplex does z/OSMF manage, and which systems are contained in a specific sysplex
    * Software Management REST interface - to retrieve information about z/OSMF Software Instances
       - Application linking manager interface services
       - z/OSMF information retrieval service

    Come to this session to hear how to use each of the z/OSMF REST APIs.
