ISPF user profile

z/Server allows more than one user server per TSO user to be run in parallel. Each user server needs its own exclusive ISPF environment. This implies the allocation of an ISPF user profile dataset. The allocation of the user profile dataset is done in the sample REXX exec IVPINIT1 and should be customized to adhere to the installation's standards.

ISPF user profile allocation is done as follows:

We recommend that you allocate the temporary ISPF profile dataset to an SMS managed temporary dataset pool, which is automatically deleted according to installations' standards. In that case, the deletion of the temporary ISPF profile dataset in the REXX IVPINIT1 can be omitted.
