What is APAR (Authorized Programming Analysis Report)?
APAR (Authorized Programming Analysis Report) is a report used by IBM to document the program errors detected by the programmer and possible solutions. An APAR is documentation for IBM customers. The report is generated when a customer reports a bug (ie, a bug) in a software program.
When the problem has been resolved by IBM's support department, a temporary fix is created. The deficiencies experienced by IBM customers are documented to facilitate subsequent maintenance of the product.
