Issue/Introduction

In the Top Secret TSSUTIL output, signon violations usually display the NAME= associated with the ACID that received the violation. Occasionally, the NAME= is not shown in the RESOURCE column. For example:

DATE      TIME    SYSID JOBNAME ACID         FFM VC PGM SRC/DRC SEC RESOURCE
02/17/20 05:10:24 ssss   jjjjjjj            aaaaaaaa 13F    02 pgm   *1C*-01     INI   NAME=name

02/17/20 05:11:26 ssss   jjjjjjj            aaaaaaaa 13F         pgm   *1C*-01     INI

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA Top Secret for z/OS

Resolution

For entries that don't have a violation count, the name doesn't appear. This is the way it works. The event without violation count  indicates that the user attempted to logon after the ACID was suspended. In the example below, the first event has a violation count (VC) of 02 (in red). The second event does not have a violation count and therefore does not display the NAME associated with the acid.


DATE      TIME    SYSID JOBNAME ACID         FFM VC PGM SRC/DRC SEC RESOURCE
02/17/20 05:10:24 ssss   jjjjjjj            aaaaaaaa  ffm   02 pgm   *1C*-01     INI   NAME=name

02/17/20 05:11:26 ssss   jjjjjjj            aaaaaaaa  ffm        pgm   *1C*-01     INI

The red "02" in the first event above indicates that the 1C-01 record was cut at the time the user "exceeded" PTHRESH and was placed in suspended status.
