Issue/Introduction

Is there documentation that would explain how something similar to the RACF “Installation Data Field” can be created for ACF2 logonids?

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : ACF2 for z/OS

Resolution

There is no direct equivalent to RACF's Installation Data Field in the ACF2 provided logonid record fields. A user defined field in ACF2 can be created to make a 1-to-1 equivalent by adding a CHAR field to logonid records using the @CFDE macro in the ACFFDR. In general though, it's better to create fields with more meaningful field names containing relevant data as opposed to a generic character field containing up to 254 characters.
