Generate rebind package commands for all packages selected with 'RB' and '=' sign on panel ADB21K

On panel ADB21K, I type 'RB' next to a package and '=' against another package. I hit Enter and am taken to panel ADB21KR for the 1st package. I make no changes so hit Enter. I am taken to panel ADB2PSTM, where I choose option 1 and hit Enter. The package is rebound. and the result shown on panel ADB2CB. I hit F3 and am taken to panel ADB21KR for the same package.


I hit F3 to go to panel ADB21KR for the next package. I make no changes so hit Enter. I am taken to panel ADB2PSTM, where I choose option 1 and hit Enter. The package is rebound. and the result shown on panel ADB2CB. I hit F3 and am taken back to panel ADB21KR again, where I hit F3 to get back to panel ADB21K.


I calculate this to be 5 Enters and 4 F3s to rebind just 2 packages.


This is too much effort for rebinding 2 packages, and would involve more key strokes for more packages. In addition, panels are displayed unnecessarily.


There is no workaround. I want to run the rebinds interactively; I do not want to run in batch or as a work statement list.


The REBIND command line command rebinds all packages displayed on panel ADB21K and I do not want to rebind all packages. I cannot filter on just those I want to rebind, so I have to use the 'RB' and '=' line commands.


A competitor's tool allows the user to rebind all selected packages in one go using the 'RB' and '=' line commands, rather than working through them one at a time.

    Thank you for submitting this enhancement request. While we view all the enhancement requests we receive as valuable and we would like to implement all of them, in an effort to have maximum transparency we are closing the ones that don’t currently appear on our two year product roadmap. This is not to say that these enhancements may not still be implemented at some point in the future, as we constantly evaluate our requirements on the basis of customer demand and technical impact and try to deliver maximum value to our customers. We appreciate your feedback and would be happy to discuss your enhancement requests further.
