z/OS system definition reference searches

To maintain the integrity of your repository artifact references, use a system definition reference search to find out whether any inactive artifacts that you might archive are referenced by other artifacts.

Before you archive a data set definition, language definition, or translator, a system definition reference search can scan your repository artifacts for references to that data set definition, language definition, or translator, so that you do not inadvertently create broken references when you archive it. For details about how to use the system definition reference search, refer to this topic: Searching for object dependencies with the system definition reference search on z/OS.

For a video demonstration of the system definition reference search feature, see Searching for references to zEnterpriseĀ® system definitions and switching to a different definition for objects.
