Issue/Introduction

A CA Ideal batch job gets the following error:

IDADCMDP02E - Command invalid or incomplete starting at "SIGNON"

Cause

This error is usually returned when CA Ideal is running with External Security activated for signon (SECRTY=Y in SC00OPTS) 
To determine the current setting for SC00OPTS in the CUSLIB, run DBCGSPR to generate the source from the SC00OPTS load module.

Environment

Batch Ideal jobs

Resolution

If SECRTY parameter is set to Y in SC00OPTS, then the SIGNON card is no longer required, so it must be removed. 

Additional Information

Enabling External Security section of Ideal documentation states:

The CA Ideal™ for CA Datacom® SIGNON statement no longer determines the identity of a batch user since the user ID is passed to the external security package in the JCL. .
