Green Output

Setting Up and Managing Green Output (Default eReports Folder)

When your output from the Mainframe is sent to Green Output, it will be placed in an eReports folder with a 1GB limit on Austin Disk within a sub-folder named with your EID. If this folder does not yet exist, Green Output will create and configure this folder for you automatically. Green Output is available at no cost to individuals who need mainframe reports. In fact, using Green Output will reduce your paper printing costs.

Note: The folder will be created with your initial Green Output request, it may take up to an hour for the permissions to be applied allowing the EID holder to access the folder.
