Configure the Mainframe Helper Object (ssomho.exe) to only detect specific HLLAPI sessions

Oracle LM Agent (SSOMHO.exe) is interacting with all of the 3270 Emulations.
There is a Rumba application that is defined with the short name J and a secondary mainframe application defined with Short name Q. Currently the mainframe helper object detects both applications irregardless of the short name definition.


The desired effect is to have mainframe helper object only detect sessions defined with a specific short name 


  1. Start the Rumba mainframe application with Short name session J,
  2. ESSO-LM agent responds to the mainframe application.
  3. Start the secondary mainframe application with Short name session Q.
  4. ESSO-LM agent also responds to secondary application.
