G4EBAY Parameter Overrides

G4EBAY allows overriding of certain parameters that are used in the call to GETURI.

The overrides should be placed in the file G4EBPARMPF. The layout of this file is as follows:

File Name . . . . G4EBPARMPF                                 
  Library . . . .   G4EBAY                                   
Format Descr  . .                                            
Format Name . . . RG4EBPARM                                  
File Type . . . . PF            Unique Keys - N              
Field Name FMT Start Lngth Dec Key Field Description         
GEPID       A      1    10         User ID                   
GEPPARM     A     11    64         Parameter                 
GEPVALUE    A     75  1024         Value                     

Parameters can be set globally by entering a blank user ID for the record.

The global values can then be overridden at a user profile level. For example, if there was a record with a blank user ID and GI_CCSID with a value of 1208, but user BVSTONE had a record with GI_CCSID and a value of 1252 the latter would be used.

The current list of values that can be overridden are as follows:

  • GI_Proxy
  • GI_Port
  • GI_BUser
  • GI_BPW
  • GI_PUser
  • GI_PPW
  • GI_LocalIP
  • GI_LocalPort
  • GI_CodPag
  • GI_Timeout
  • GI_SSLTime
  • GI_SSLApp
  • GI_CStore
  • GI_CPW
  • GI_SSL

Meanings and uses of these parameters can be found in the GETURI API Interface documentation.
