CA Automic Workload Automation - Automation Engine

Issue/Introduction

In the callapi (12.2.1) .ini on AIX the password parameter ist descripted as optional.
; pass: Login specifications: Password (optional)
;
;pass=

But when I try to use a user without password giving this error:
20200512/084254.527 - U00003210 Logon error: Access denied


It works if we fill the password.

Any other configuration required to get callapi to work without password. 

Environment

Release : 12.2

Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE

Resolution

Check if the user logged in to AE System via CallApi has Privilege "Logon Via CallAPI"
and with required authorizations to execute scripts. 

Also check if UC_USER_LOGON  was empty ( call - AUTO was missing).
