MIG panel option for HPU Unload to allow selection of 'REPLACE' in LOADOPTS parm RFE 124519


When driving HPU through a MIG Data unload/load the resulting load is always generated as RESUME YES.
If the target tables already exist with data then we need to do a LOAD REPLACE.
We are looking for an option on the MIG panel for REPLACE to be selected and inserted into the LOADOPTS.
We would also like this option visible in the JCL if the batch JCL generate option is selected.

Use Case
As stated above, sometimes the target tables are not empty and we want to run LOAD REPLACEs<br/>Having a flag that can be set both in the online panel and also visible in the JCL if a Batch Generate is selected would enable this to be incorporated into our dev ops automation process.
