Issue/Introduction

Submitting batch job and the user acid is getting truncated to 7 characters and receiving the ALT-ACID signon security violation. TSSUTIL shows the following:
 
DATE      TIME    SYSID ACCESSOR  JOBNAME   FACILITY  MODE  VC  PROGRAM   R-ACCESS A-ACCESS  SRC/DRC  SEC  JOBID   TERMINAL 
--------  --------  ----- --------  --------  --------  ----  --  --------  -------- --------  -------  ---  ------- -------

                    RESOURCE  TYPE & NAME :   ALT-ACID  ACID=DEVUSR   JOB=TS0042JK

DEVUSR acid not defined to Top Secret but DEVUSRS is defined.                                       

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA Top Secret for z/OS

Resolution

Issue a TSS MODIFY STATUS and see what is specified for SUBACID and JOBACID.

 

Make sure you have (U,8) and not (U,7) which will truncate the acid.



SUBACID and JOBACID control how the job inherits the acid and how much many characters of the submitting acid is used for the job if there is no USER= in the job.
