Connect:Direct for zOS copying files to SNODE (Linux or Windows ) at the same time using a '*' mask to individual datasets

The client SERPRO would like that was possible in Connect:Direct CDP pull a list of datasets that meet your dataset mask with the '*' (for eg. ABCDEF*.TXT)and based on that list of datasets that match then to start copies each of the datasets one at a time to a Connec:Direct for distributed platform, like Windows or Linux.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with us.  I have reviewed it with my team thoroughly.  Unfortunately we won't be able to accept this request as it's not technically feasible to use a wildcard in these types of transfers to non-z/OS platforms.  The required external utility is z/OS-specific and isn't available on Windows or UNIX/Linux.  I'll need to reject this due to these technical limitations, but please don't hesitate to open future enhancement requests if you think of other changes we should consider.
