The IBM z/OS IMS collection, also represented as ibm_zos_ims 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 IMS collection supports tasks such as generating IMS Database Descriptors (DBD), Program Specification Blocks (PSB), Application Control Blocks (ACB), running IMS commands (type-1, type-2, DBRC), interacting with the IMS Catalog, and the IMS Data Definition Language Utility (DDL).

The Ansible modules in this collection are written in Python and interact with the IBM z/OS core collection and Z Open Automation Utilities.
