Is there a programmatic way to ask ACF2 regarding a specific user whether it has a password-phrase, PWPHRASE set already or not ?
After LU06571 fix, change PWPHRASE command doesn't work if it has not been set with a value.
Release : 16.0
The indication whether PWPHRASE has been set is in a sample ACNTRY call:
MVI ACNTFCN,ACNTFC0A INFOSTOR ACCESS & UPDATE 00160001
MVI ACNTSFCN,ACNF$FRT FORMATTED RETURN 00170007
MVI ACNTFLGC,0 NO FLGC 00180001
LHI R1,-1 USE 00190001
ST R1,ACNTUCB ACF2 SUPERCALL 00200001
LA R15,MSG 00210001
ST R15,ACNTMSG 00220001
MVI ACNTFLG2,0 NO FLG2 00230001
MVC ACNTTYPE,=CL4'PUSR' STORAGE CLASS & TYPE 00240001
MVC ACNTSIRI,=CL40' ' INIT KEY TO BLANKS 00250001
MVC ACNTSIRI(8),=CL8'PWPHRASE' FIELD NAME TO KEY 00260001
MVC ACNTSIRI+8(8),USERID USERID TO KEY 00270001
This is the ACNTRY request type that will return a formatted listing of the profile record.
The output from the ACNTRY call will contain the 3 fields as shown below:
PWP-TOD(06/28/22-13:44) PWPA1TOD(06/28/22-13:44) PWPA2TOD(00/00/00-00:00)
Next, browse those fields: to determine:
If they contain 00/00/00, that indicates there is no pass phrase set.
If any of the fields have a date value, that indicates there is a password phrase in the logonid is already set.
