After a migration from Autosys 4.5 or 11.0 to CA WAAE 11.3.x, is there any Utility to export/import users ( "[email protected]"  ) from  autosys_secure with the encrypted passwords


There is no way to migrate the users because the internal encryption has changed between Autosys 11.0 and 11.3.x .

However you  can run the "autosys_secure" utility on the old server to display the existing users defined in the old instance.
Then use the "autosys_secure -a -u [email protected]{host|domain} -p password" command  to create the new users from the command line in the AE 11.3.6 instance.

But you have to know the passwords from the end users

Additional Information:

During the early stage of the migration, you can also download the CA Workload Automation AutoSys Upgrade Assistant ( AUA ) which is an an easy-to-use utility that streamlines the upgrade process and reduces risk in your CA AutoSys 4.5.1 or 11.0 environment before you start your upgrade to 11.3.x

The AutoSys Upgrade Assistant is  free of charge to licensed CA Workload Automation AE customers and is able to migrate these users and you job definitions

You can download the Automated Upgrade Assistant Tool from the web site at the following link
