Connection Reference in Service Project Editor of z/OS Connect EE

Please help me to understand the connection Reference that we give the service project editor of z/OS connect EE.

Will it be used when establishing a connection with CICS region from z/OS connect EE server?

Adding the image. enter image description here


  • The connection reference is used to establish the connection to CICS from z/OS Connect. The value should match the id attribute of the zosconnect_cicsIpicConnection element in server.xml.


    <zosconnect_cicsIpicConnection id="cicsConn" host="localhost" port="1091"/>
