IBM i - missing commands for BRMS

I have found that there are different commands for BRMS ending typically with BRM, but some functions to work with doesn't have a command to use....ex. a command for changing IPL controls doesn't exist, and using WRKPCYBRM *SYS would be expected to go directly to the screen where you can see and change the system policy, instead you end up in a sub menu with about 8 choices. But using WRKPCYBRM *MED does go directly to the media policies.

Please see attachment for examples and illustrations.

The examples is just for illustration purposes, other commands are propably also missing (not developed).

Use Case:

I found this as I would like to create my own menus, with specifically the items I find important to Work with, put in one screen, and I also sometimes use a BRMS command directly ex. WRKCTLGBRM, but this can't be done for every BRMS function. I find that a complete command set for BRMS could be of great value as many alreday exits.

    IBM does not intend to provide a solution to this request at this time, so it is being closed.
