Question:

When submitting batch jobs with 8 character acids, the acid gets truncated to 7 characters and the following error messages are received:

    TSS7250E 157 J=jobname A=acid TYPE=ALT-ACID RESOURCE=trucatedacid 
    TSS7271E Job Submit/ACID Authorization Denied. ACID <acid> Not
    Authorized for Your Use 

CA Top Secret Control Option SUBACID(U,7) is specified.

Answer:

With CA Top Secret Control Options SUBACID(U,7) specified, only the first 7 characters of the acid will be used for the batch signon.

This will cause the:

    TSS7250E 157 J=jobname A=acid TYPE=ALT-ACID RESOURCE=trucatedacid
    TSS7271E Job Submit/ACID Authorization Denied. ACID <acid> Not
    Authorized for Your Use 

because the submitting acid is usually not permitted to the truncated acid.

To temporarily get around the problem, PERMIT the acid to the truncated acid.

Example :

    TSS PERMIT(ACID123) ACID(ACID12)

For a permanent solution, change SUBACID(U,7) to SUBACID(U,8). This will allow the entire acid to be used.
