I logged into MVS CICS to view an application, which I found I do not have ACF2 rights to. How can I exit CICS?

I've tried.

  • exit
  • quit
  • F3

All of which present me with the error message:

MVSCICS Transaction 'QUIT' is not recognized.
Check that the transaction name is correct.

The transaction is logoff. On some older machines it's cssf logoff.

Thanks for this, I'm using an antiquated system like this and this didn't seem to be documented anywhere. – John Straka Aug 29 '11 at 14:07
For me it was just cssf – hdost Dec 11 '15 at 18:35
