Issue/Introduction

With APAR OA44855, a new keyword of PASSWORDPREPROMPT was added to the LOGON parameter of the IKJTSO xx parmlib member.   By having PASSWORDPREPROMPT(ON) specified on the LOGON statement of IKJTSOxx the user will be prompted for the password, which must be correct, before the full panel (with user attributes visible) is presented.

Are there any plans to support this APAR under CA ACF2 for z/OS? 

Environment

Release: ACF2 R15.0 

Resolution

CA ACF2 for z/OS replaces the code where this IBM change would take effect. CA ACF2 for z/OS has never allowed a user to see the TSO full screen logon panel without providing a valid Logonid and password. Turning on the IBM option (PASSWORDPREPROMPT in IKJTSOxx) would have no effect in ACF2.
