Exit Point QIBM_QPWFS_FILE_SERV more object type info
File Server Exit Point QIBM_QPWFS_FILE_SERV Format PWFS0200 The File Server Exit Point since V7R3 has a format PWFS0200. This format brings a parameter “Object type” that can be either *STMF for file or *DIR for directory. Unfortunately the only function is the CREATE that comes with this information.
REQUEST: Customer requested to enhance also the MOVE operation with this information.
Administrators want to be able to reject moves of directories that often happen by mistake when a user is clicking on a mapped share of the ifs on a directory and moves the mouse. This causes unwanted moves of directories including sub-directories to another directory and processes based on the existence of the moved directories will fail.
currently the exit point returns only a string of directory/file and except the create statement the flag for directory/file is not in use. So we don't know if a move operation is for only a directory or a directory+file.
Customers want to avoid the move of directories but may allow the move of files.
Target of this request function enhancement is to support the flag for directory/file at least in the move operation, better would be to have it in all functions.
We would appreciate to have this backward compatible for V7R3.
