How to disable a panel in CICS without making program changes

How to disable a panel in CICS without making program changes

(OP)
I have a series of CICS panels in my legacy COBOL application. Is there a way to disable access to specific panels without making changes to the source code and recompiling? I vaguely remember issuing a CEMT TRANS command once, but it appears it disables ALL the panels, not just one. ponder

RE: How to disable a panel in CICS without making program changes

I believe your only choice is to disable the transaction, not a particular map or program.

I discovered that the command I was thinking of was CEMT PROG. It works, but when I attempt to access the disabled screen it crashes with a "DFHAC2206 15:16:47 CICST1 TRANSACTION screen-name FAILED WITH ABEND AEI0." message. Surely, there must be a way to test if screen-name is enabled or disabled and gracefully handle it?
