Capturing text

The most common use of the Extract action is to capture text that is being displayed in the session window. This operation does not require the HCL ZIE Host Access Toolkit.

Here is an overview of the steps to follow. Each step is described in more detail in the following subsections.
  1. Set the Continuous Extract option, if necessary
  2. Specify an area on the session window that you want to capture.
  3. Specify an extraction name.
  4. Specify TEXT_PLANE as the data plane.
  5. Specify a variable in which you want the text to be stored.
