Set 'Pass Ticket Prof name' when this profile name needs to be supplied to the external security system instead of the applid during Pass Ticket generation.
- When ACT field Pass Ticket Prof Name is empty, TPX issues the pass ticket request with the USERID & APPLID.
- When ACT field Pass Ticket Prof Name contains a profile name, TPX issues the pass ticket request with the USERID & Pass Ticket Prof Name.
NOTE: There is no session level parameter at either user or profile level for specifying this profile name. It can only be specified within the Application Characteristics Table (ACT).
We know that this is usually required for TSO and VM systems, where this parameter will have the value "TSOsmfid" or "VMcpuid".
- TSO - TSOsmfid
- VM - VMcpuid
Other applications requiring Pass Ticket prof name, as provided to us by TPX customers: (Please verify for your environment.)
- MVSxxxx system default
- APPLID of application
- SESSIONID >>> Note that this was not the APPLID but rather the SESSIONID defined in TPX.
There may be additional applications where this parameter is also required. That should be determined in conjunction with the application vendor and your security administrator.
A security trace on the application may help identify which parameters the application is sending to security for validation. TPX can then be defined to request pass ticket creation for the same parameters.
