Using CAST AIP Console
See Application onboarding for more information.
Source code delivery
If you want to deliver PDS dump files (containing the Mainframe source code) in the ZIP or the source code folder location, you will need to configure AIP Console to recognise them. This can be done using the Administration Center - Settings - Mainframe libraries - PDS Dump option option available in Administration Center - Global Configurations:
Each PDS dump file that is recognised by AIP Console will be extracted: one file (that the CAST Mainframe Analyzer can analyze) will be created per element in the PDS dump file and these files are then analyzed when an analysis is run.
PDS dump location
Use the "Mainframe" option in the CAST Delivery Manager Tool:

The Mainframe PDS dump option is designed for target Mainframe source code (Cobol, JCL etc.) that is the result of a PDS (Partitioned Data Set) dump.
A PDS is a type of "library" containing elements known as "members" exported from a z/OS system (eg. Cobol programs, copybooks, JCL etc.) Each member in the PDS is preceded by a banner containing the member's name (among other information) and is concatenated with other elements in text format. The CAST Delivery Manager Tool package for PDS dumps only supports one type of members and one banner prefix per file. If there are several types of members they must be delivered through multiple dump files and if several banner prefixes are used for the same type of members, then the source code delivery must be done through multiple dump files.
The CAST Delivery Manager Tool enables you to specify one or more PDS dumps - each dump that is specified will be extracted: one file (that the CAST Mainframe Analyzer can exploit via the CAST Management Studio) will be created per element in the PDS dump file and packaged ready for analysis.
When configuring the package, use the Add button to add the PDS dump file.
A dialog box will enable you to configure the settings for the PDS dump file:
