We have installed the CA 7 components to support the CA 7 REST API. The components installed were :
When a user tries to access CA 7 using zowe and the CA 7 REST API they get an error response back from the REST API.
The userid they are using to access CA 7 with is a restricted userid (no password required). Informed the users to not specify any password on the API request as any password specification is invalid.
Release : 12.1
Unfortunately for the user it appears the zowe CLI does not allow one to omit the -password option when using a userid that does not require a password. If the -password option is mandatory even when the userid does not have a password assigned then it looks like the solution to this problem is to assign a password to the userid.
Confirmation from the Zowe development team and CLI does require a userid / password for authentification.
