Defining a z/OS engine in Dynamic Workload Console

Steps to create a z/OS engine connection in the Dynamic Workload Console

After logging to the Dynamic Workload Console using the administrator user ID or another user ID with the appropriate roles assigned, use the following steps to define a connection to one of your supported HCL Workload Automation for Z engines.

For detailed information about the roles required to run the Dynamic Workload Console, see how to configure security roles to users and groups in the HCL Workload Automation: Administration Guide.

  1. From the navigation toolbar, click Administration > Manage Engines.
  2. From the displayed panel you can create, edit, delete, or share an engine connection, and test the connection to the remote server where HCL Workload Automation for Z is installed. You can order the list of engine connections displayed in this panel by using sorting criteria that you select with the buttons at the upper left corner of the table.
  3. Click New Engine.
  4. In the Engine Connection Properties window, assign a name to the engine connection and specify the required information. For more details about fields and options, see the online help by clicking the "?" in the top right corner. If you want to test the connection to the HCL Workload Automation for Z database (mandatory for managing reporting and event management functions), you must select Enable reporting and specify the user credentials.
  5. Click Test Connection to check that the configuration was successful and that the Dynamic Workload Console is communicating with the selected engine. If the test connection fails, see Troubleshooting Guide.
