Description:

What must be done to provide a default password on the CA 1 ISPF primary panel.

---------------------- CA 1(R) r11.5 PRIMARY OPTION MENU --- CA 1/ISPF START
   OPTION ===>

Solution:

There are 3 ways to supply a default password to ISPF.

  1. TMSUX2S can be used to insert a default password if one is not entered.

    CL05207 should be installed and the TMOOPT00 option of PSWD YES must be specified.

    A sample of this code is available in the Systems Programmer Guide - 5.11.3.1

  2. A default password can be supplied in CA-1 panel TMPI@PRI in CAIISPP.

    Insert the following line:
    IF (&U1SPWRD = ' ') &U1SPWRD = 'your-ispf-password'

    before:
    VPUT (U1SPWRD) SHARED

  3. If you have RO10161 and RO10164 installed, there is a new option in TMOOPT00 called ISPFDEF where you can supply a default password.
