Setting Up and Accessing Green Output (Default eReports Folder)

Note: Effective October 14, 2013 all Green Output will be directed to Austin Disk and will no longer be sent to WebSpace.

When your output from the Mainframe is sent to Green Output, it will be placed in an eReports folder 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.

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.
