Introduction:
TSSUTIL EXTRACT EVENT(VIOL), with EARLOUT an acid that is SUSPENDED has their department listed as N/A.
Question:
We are running Top Secret version 16 on z/OS 2.2 and if I run a TSSUTIL EXTRACT EVENT(VIOL), with EARLOUT an acid that is SUSPENDED has their department listed as N/A. We currently use a multi-step process to generate a report for our violations listing and I want to convert it to use EARL, so I need to have the department that is listed in the Top Secret database for these suspended acids. Please advise on how to have the TSSUTIL EXTRACT report the department correctly.
Environment:
Z/OS
Answer:
On a signon if an acid is suspended for what ever the reason may be ASUSPEN/PSUSPEND/XSUSPEND, we do NOT build a complete ACEE and thus it does not contain information such as DEPTNAME, DIVNAME and ZONENAME. So when we log the event that information is not available to be logged to the ATF/SMF files. And that is the reason why you are seeing N/A under the DEPTNAME for acids that are SUSPENed.
