Issue:
Have built a new R18 instance and have the following error when trying to generate a processor

Environment:
z/OS
All Version of Endevor
Cause:
The messages C1G0508S is issued during alternate ID setup at the start of the processor execution.
The endevor alternate ID is specified in RACFUID= parameter of C1DEFLTS table but its ACEE (a control block that describes a logged on user) is not found where it is expected to be.
This in turn is because, during initialization, endevor performs a 'log on' of the alternate ID (via a RACROUTE REQUEST=VERIFY macro).
This request failed with the RACF violation that should be shown up at the beginning of the output by message ICH408I .... + LOGON/JOB INITIATION - REVOKED USER ACCESS ATTEMPT
This tells us that userid (which could be the endevor alternate ID defined in C1DEFLTS if defined) is revoked so that RACF doesn't allow it to 'logon'
 
Resolution:
The error should clear by un-revoking this RACF ID.
Another option would be to specify a different alternate ID.
Also, if you are testing, you could run without alternate ID (provided that your ID has access to all the files). We at CA support run usually this way when reproducing customer symptoms.
