TPX - Session Management Vman Session Management for z/OS

Issue/Introduction

How can one implement auto signon to CICS, without the use of ACL
Using Session Data '&USERID,&PSWD', on the TPX Userid Maintenance Panel does not work..

Environment

Release : 5.4
Component :TPX for Z/OS

Resolution

The Syntax for Session data will vary, depending on how CICS signon transaction is configured. (CESN / CSSN etc..)
In this particular case, the following line command syntax was used to sign on to CICS using native VTAM (MSG10).

LOGON APPLID(CICSZ1A1) DATA('USERID=USERID1,PASSWORD=xxxxxxxx,FTRANS=')
or
LOGON APPLID(CICSZ1A1) DATA('USERID=USERID1,PASSWORD=xxxxxxxx')

This translates to the following specific syntax, required for the Session data, in this case.

Session Data  : USERID=&USERID,PASSWORD=&PSWD  (no quotes needed)

Additional Information

Note: Session Data syntax may vary depending on line command syntax or any other sign on method supported by CICS.
