How can we set up a user defined field in CA Top Secret for an email address?
You can use the following command to define the FDT field to TSS:
TSS ADD(FDT) FDTNAME(name) FDTCODE(nn) MAXLEN(yyy)
DISPLAY(display-name) SEGMENT(segment-name) ATTR(attr)
where 'name' is the name you want for the field.
'nn' is an FDT code (x'01' - x'FF') that is not currently in use
'yyy' is the length of the field (in bytes)
'display-name' is the name of the field that will display in the
list output. (1-11 characters. Use single quotes if this contains
'segment-name' is the name of the segment this field will belong to
(optional, 1-8 characters)
'attr' (optional) is an attribute such as MIXED if the field should
support mixed case
So for an email address, you might use something like:
TSS ADD(FDT) FDTNAME(EMAIL) FDTCODE(nn) MAXLEN(50)
DISPLAY('EMAIL ADDR') SEGMENT(USERINFO) ATTR(MIXED)
