Suppress the diagnostic data being written to CDESTAE for the SCPA019I error

We observed that there is a dump of the file in DD CDESTAE after the process failed with SCPA019I An input LRECL > output LRECL detected for compressed file. It is an exposure of business data so it would be appreciated if it can be disabled or it can provide an option to user whether to show it or not.

What is your industry? Financial Markets
How will this idea be used?

To avoid the exposure of business data.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request and for your patience as we reviewed it. I've reviewed it thoroughly with my team and we're in agreement that this would be a worthwhile enhancement. I will accept it and will look to add it to our roadmap moving forward.
