Provide message CSPA600W that would be displayed on MVS console or log.

Message CSPA600W is currently only displayed in Connect Direct joblog/started task log and would be beneficial to have available to be automated so corrective action could be taken. Other products display license expiration messages and expiring certificates should receive the same attention.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM.  I have reviewed it with my developers and we believe that these capabilities already exist within C:D for z/OS.  Because of that I must reject this enhancement request, but I have provided some guidance from our developers below.  If you have further questions about viewing the certificate expiration information please don't hesitate to contact our support team.

    These messages are generated from a feature called Certificate Expiration checking controlled by initialization parameter of CHECK.CERT.EXPIRE. All messages generated by this feature generate statistics records.  The statistics record type is CX and the Select Stats command or UI request can specify TYPE=CX to report those via the statistics facility.
