G4MS Parameter Overrides

G4GMS v1.00 and up allows overriding of certain parameters that are used in the call to GETURI.

The overrides should be placed in the file G4MSPARMPF. The layout of this file is as follows:

File Name . . . . G4MSPARMPF                                
  Library . . . .   G4MS                                
Format Descr  . .                                           
Format Name . . . RG4MSPARM  
File Type . . . . PF            Unique Keys - N
Field Name FMT Start Lngth Dec Key Field Description        
GMMID       A      1    10         User ID                  
GMMPARM     A     11    64         Parameter                
GMMVALUE    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.
