Notes:

¹ With Data Virtualization Manager for z/OS, you add data and COBOL copybooks assets from mainframe systems to catalogs in IBM Cloud Pak for Data. Copybooks are files that describe the data structure of a COBOL program. Data Virtualization Manager for z/OS helps you create virtual tables and views from COBOL copybook maps. You can then use these virtual tables and views to import and catalog mainframe data from mainframes into IBM Cloud Pak for Data in the form of data assets and COBOL copybook assets.

The following map types are not imported: ACI, Catalog, Natural

Restriction: You can't import COBOL copybooks larger than 1 MB.

When the import is finished, you can go to the catalog to review the imported assets, including the COBOL copybook maps, virtual tables, and views. You can use these assets in the same ways as other assets in Cloud Pak for Data.

For more information, see Adding COBOL copybook assets.
