Merged idea

This idea has been merged into another idea. To comment or vote on this idea, please visit IBMI-I-3259 Save timestamp captured for stream files.

Add Last SAVED Media information to IFS objects similar to IBM i objects. Merged

Today, I can use QUSROBJD or QGYOLOBJ to extract the save information for a given IBM i object.

There is no such attribute associated with IFS objects, however. 

The request is to add an IFS object property for the last saved operation with all the same attributes as IBM i objects have for saved operations, and provided access to that save information via the Qp0lGetAttr API, so it can be easily retrieved.
