Enhancement Nbr 3 for Adding Additional User Information to the BRMS Recovery Report - QP1ARCY

Adding Additional User Information to the BRMS Recovery Report is a great way to get customer or system specific information into the recovery report

However, there is a need for a few enhancement in this area.

To include User Information to the recovery report you need to specify STRRCYBRM USRRCYINF(*ADD). However, if the recovery report is created during the STRMNTBRM and the PRTRCYRPT there is no way of specify that you want to add user information to the recovery report.

Proposed solution: Add USRRCYINF to the STRMNTBRM command.

Use Case:

Be able to include User Information to the BRMS Recovery Report when reports are created when running BRMS maintenance.

    This Idea did not make the plan cut and is highly unlikely to become part of the future plans so it is being declined. The STRRCYBRM command has several important parameter options available which are used to generate different recovery actions which do not make sense on STRMNTBRM command. It is recommended that STRRCYBRM be used to generate a recovery versus using the STRMNTBRM command.
