    Currently it is not possible to exclude Data Sets or Jobs from RDS

    It should be possible to specify LABEL=EXPDT=JCL or LABEL=RETPD=JCL in the CA 1 Retention Data Set (RDS),
    if the JCL EXPDT/RETPD or the default retention should be kept.

    For example:

     

    DSN=-,LABEL=RETPD=CATALOG
    DSN=-,LABEL=EXPDT=JCL,J=MYJOB

     

    The EXPDT/RETPD from the JCL used in MYJOB is kept and not overwritten by the first rule.
    This way, it would be possible to exclude certain jobs for example from RDS processing.
