STRSST / 1 / 1 / 1 / 1 / Select Analysis Report Options

STRSST / 1 / 1 / 1 / 1 / Select Analysis Report Options:

I like to add additional sysrefcodes to the list in the screen below so that I can omit these sysref codes from the list. But when I add sysref 6B253400 as third entry it is not stored permanently. When I leave SST and re-open SST my third entry 6B253400 is lost. The first 2 sysref codes are permanently stored and that is what I want to do with the third sysref as well: Can you explain me HOW to do ?

Select Analysis Report Options

Type choices, press Enter.

Report type . . . . . . . . . 1 1=Display analysis, 2=Display summary,
3=Print options
Optional entries to include:
Informational . . . . . . . Y Y=Yes, N=No
Statistic . . . . . . . . . Y Y=Yes, N=No

Reference code or system reference code selection:
Option . . . . . . . . . . 2 1=Include, 2=Omit
Reference codes or system reference codes
63A0FFF6 63A1FFF6 *ALL...

Device selection:
Option . . . . . . . . . . 1 1=Types, 2=Resource names
Device types or Resource names
*ALL *ALL...

This line to omit/include selected refcod's would helpfull if customer's can permanently save the refcodes they do no want to see for example 6B253400. When you have 150 Lpar's it's helpfull if you can determine by yourself which entry's you like to see and which entry's you do not like to see.
Also this selection should be kept so that you do not have to enter those details again when you leave / re-open STRSST again.

Use Case:

System Monitoring.
Service Tools: STRSST
Case TS008595356

    IBM will use this request as input to planning but no commitment is made or implied. This request will be updated in the future if IBM implements it. IBM will use votes and comments from others in the community to help prioritize this request.
