Batch Ideal job gets the following error:


IDADCMDP02E - Command invalid or incomplete starting at "SIGNON"

Batch Ideal jobs

This error is usually returned when Ideal is running with External Security activated for signon (SECRTY=Y in SC00OPTS) 


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. .
