z/OS Core

The IBM® z/OS® core collection, also represented as ibm_zos_core in this document, is part of the broader initiative to bring Ansible® Automation to IBM Z® through the offering Red Hat® Ansible Certified Content for IBM Z.

The IBM z/OS core collection supports automation tasks such as creating data sets, submitting jobs, querying jobs, retrieving job output, encoding data sets, fetching data sets, copying data sets, executing operator commands, executing TSO commands, ping, querying operator actions, APF authorizing libraries, editing textual data in data sets or Unix System Services files, finding data sets, backing up and restoring data sets and volumes and running z/OS programs without JCL.

The Ansible modules in this collection are written in Python and REXX and interact with Z Open Automation Utilities.
