Introduction:

Trying to do User Self-maintenance. For user option ACCESS, F1 (HELP) doesn't describe MULTIPLE which shows up as the system default.

I cannot find any further description of MULTIPLE for this option in the documentation. 

           TPX Userid Maintenance Detail Panel                         
                                                           Panelid  - TEN0166 
 Command ===>                                              Userid   - USERX01

Userid:   USERX01                                          Date     -

ACCESS:                 ______      ______              MULTIPLE              
...                                                                           
Transfer option:        MULT        ____       

Here are the F1 (HELP) field level details:

ACCESS changes the user's session access privileges from that specified in the SMRT
- SINGLE restricts the user from having more than one session at a time.
- PASS restricts the user to having passed sessions only.

 

Question:

What does ACCESS user option mean when set to MULTIPLE?

Environment:
TPX 5.4
Answer:

The value MULTIPLE can only be selected at the SMRT level, not during User maintenance (either self-maintenance or admin user maintenance). This is why "MULTIPLE" is not displayed on this help panel.

It is listed on the SMRT System Features help panel:

          ACCESS - Specifies whether you want this TPX to function as MULTIPLE
          (multiple-session manager), SINGLE (single-session manager), or PASS 
          (pass session only) .

 

MULTIPLE allows the user to have more than one TPX session at a time.

 

Additional Information:
  • For a user with ACCESS MULTIPLE, this user can only have more than one session of a particular application if that application supports this (defined as MUSASS - Multiple-User, Single Address Space System).
  • The value in the left most column will take precedence, if present: User level default overrides profile default which overrides system default.
