Search Z Artifact should have better Mainframe support

We are trying to set up a CI/CD pipeline for supporting “old traditional” mainframe development and then use UCD as a deployment manager.

Our z/OS developers are used to be able to easy see the inventory in our different environments (several development environments + production).

They can search for an element name including other optional search criteria (wild-card, source type e.t.c.) and in the search result they can see all the status, version e.t.c. in all environments.

If the new CI/CD pipeline Should be useful for them they need to have better search functionality in UCD.


UCD should in “Z Artifact search” provide a search for a given module across a selection of UCD environments (so either all, or a subset).

Expected outcome - List of UCD component versions, their deploy data in context of the selected environments. This will give the developers ability to understand the different versions in the different environments

    Please could you check the latest UCD version 7.3.1 which now provides a z artifact search report which would support your request.
