idf

END, START, KEEP, HALT, SUBMIT, DELETE, LISTCAT, DISPLAY, RESUME, KSTATE

[IDF = identifier]

File type identifier.

Several catalog entries may be associated with a given IDF. There is no default value.

If a set of transfers is selected, transfers are processed in batches of 20 every 5 seconds.

CFTAUTH

[IDF = {identifier | mask, identifier | mask } ]

List of authorized or prohibited IDF.

Specify a list of up to 200 model file identifiers.

The value associated with each of these idfs can be:

  • an explicit file identifier
  • a mask

CFTETB

[IDF = identifier]

Local identifier of the model file associated with this card format (ID of CFTSEND/ CFTRECV).

If this parameter is not defined (default value = 8 blank characters), the card is suitable for all model files.

In requester mode, the parameter card consists of either:

  • a CFTETB description, where the IDF equals the model file identifier of the transfer request, or
  • the description CFTETB IDF = ‘ ’ if the above description does not exist

In server mode, the description CFTETB IDF = ‘ ’ is always used to decode the parameter card received

The following descriptions are hence required for operation in server mode:

CFTETB     DIRECT     =     SEND,     ID     =     ALL,     IDF     =     ‘ ’
CFTETB     DIRECT     =     RECV,     ID     =     ALL,     IDF     =     ‘ ’

CFTPART

[IDF = identifier ]

Default 32-character identifier of the file for the partner.

This parameter offers the possibility of designating a generic name for each partner when the IDF in the object does not exist in the parameter base. This name, which is valid for send transfers (SEND) and for receive transfers (RECV), takes precedence over the DEFAULT parameter of the CFTPARM object.

CFTPROT

[IDF = string64]

Use  to assign an IDF (file idendifier) to a file on receiving an NIDF that is more than 8 characters long.

This parameter can be used in:

  • server mode (sender or receiver)
  • receiver requester following the activation of a RECV IDF=<mask> command

The value of this parameter may be:

  • explicit: the authorized character string must then not be more than 8 characters long
  • obtained from one or more "substrings" of the symbolic variable &NIDF (corresponding to the NIDF received), the character string must not be more than 64 characters long. See the definition of a "substring" of a symbolic variable.

Example:

For a received NIDF containing 19 characters, IDF may take the value: IDF=&2.3NIDF&12.5NIDF.

This string cannot be more than 64 characters long.

The string must not be more than 8 characters long after substituting the variables.

In the above example, the length of the IDF value is:
     - before substitution: 17 characters
     - after substitution: 8 characters

SEND

[ IDF = identifier ]

File identifier.

If an identifier is not specified, the CFTPART IDF is used.

If the idf is specified, but does not exist, the idf is forced to IDFDEF, you can disable this functionality. See cft.default_idf.enable.

RECV

[ IDF = { identifier | mask } ]

File identifier.

If an identifier is not specified, the CFTPART IDF is used.

If the idf is specified, but does not exist, the idf is forced to IDFDEF, you can disable this functionality. See cft.default_idf.enable.
