Tools Customizer - Needs MGMTCLAS/STORCLAS RFE 67078

IBM Tools Customizer for z/OS needs option to force generated datasets to MGMTCLAS/STORCLAS

Use Case:

This is for IBM Tools Customizer for z/OS (DB2 Tools). I was unable to locate "Product" by this name. When JCL is generated from Tools Customizer, the DSN that gets created goes to a "standard/minimal" MGMTCLAS/STORCLAS resulting in the JCL having a lifespan of 60 days. Thus, we are losing our customizations. PMR 63476 227 000 had been submitted that recommended an RFE.
