Issue/Introduction

When new ACF2 for z/OS logonid records are created, the GROUPD() is not setup. 
Require each new logonid record GROUP field to have GROUP(OMVSGRP) as the default.

Example ACF2 logonid INSERT command:
INSERT xxxxxx NAME(xxxx, xxxx) PHONE(nnn nnn-nnnn) CICS JOB IMS

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS

Resolution

There is no ACF2 GSO option to provide a default GROUP upon creation (INSERT) of the logonid.

The only method discovered is that a change would need to be made to the @CFDE GROUP
entry where a DFT= value can be provided. The following would be an example:

@CFDE GROUP,LIDGROUP,CHAR,ALTER=SECURITY+ACCOUNT,DFT=OMVSGRP,   X02230100


The following is ACF2 documentation related to DFT= in section titled:

@CFDE -- Create Field Definition Entry Macro


Essentially the @CFDE GROUP entry would be modified using the ACF2 UM99901 usermod via a ++MACUPD (ACFCFDE) update.
