Issue/Introduction

What does new task code PASS which invokes program RHDCPASS do?

 

Environment

Release : 19.0

Component : CA IDMS

Resolution

The system task PASS was introduced in 19.0 by PTF SO05694 with the support for password phrases (passphrase). 
It invokes RHDCPASS and is an alternative to using the SIGNON system task to change the password or passphrase. 
Task PASS makes it easier to change passphrases which can be from 9 to 100 characters long.
The task is invoked from a terminal by a user when they want to change their password or passphrase.
