CA ACF2 CA ACF2 - z/OS

Issue/Introduction

An ACF2 LIST subcommand using a UID string with 24 characters returns ACF02008 message.
 
Example:                                                
LIST UID(012345678901234567890123)                      
 ACF02008 SUPPLIED MASK DOES NOT CONTAIN ANY ASTERISKS

Environment

Release : 16.0
Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS

Resolution

The UID value within a LIST subcommand is defined as a mask.  There must be at least
one masking character or space at the end of the specified UID string for an implied mask.
 
If there is a value in the 24th byte and no masking character is provided anywhere
else within the UID value provided, there is nowhere to put an implied masking character at the end
thus the ACF02008 message is returned.

If there is a 24th byte within the LIST UID mask and no masking characters have been specified,
it would be recommended to list the logonid with LIST <lid> instead of LIST UID(<uid>).
