SM/SWAP is a separately licensed component of Session Manager for CICS allowing a single CICS terminal to function as up to eight logical terminals with each one running the same or a different transaction. Groups determine the maximum sessions, rotate keys and optional transaction to launch for each of the sessions. Navigation between the sessions is done by pressing the group's designated forward and backward PF/PA keys. Another optional PF/PA key can be assigned to launch the Selection Screen, where you directly select a session, hide or unhide sessions or save your sessions for later use at the same or a different terminal. Users can optionally override the default rotate PF/PA keys and Session Tranid values at startup.
