I just started with BIM and need to define BIM jobs for our z/OS but I cannot seem to figure out how to get this accomplished. Any information will be greatly appreciated.

If not answered already.... The z/OS job needs to have a global Out condition set. You can find the global condition prefixes available to your site from the C-M/Desktop under Tools -> Global Condition Prefixes. Not sure if this is the default or not, but we use G- to let the systems know that the condition is of the global variety. So my example would be G-PST12345-ENDED, where the PST12345 is my z/OS job that I want the BIM to follow.

A BIM job should be setup on the distributed side with the previously mentioned Out condition set as its In condition. I name those like PST12345_BIM.

Think that gets you where you need to be without telling you exactly how to setup the BIM itself.
