If you knew the terminal-id that the user signed-on to, then you could obtain the userid via an INQUIRE TERMINAL command.

However, obtaining the user's password is highly irregular and perhaps, a violation of rules defined by your Security group.

I can understand the userid capture, but the password? I think you need to speak to someone at your site regarding this subject.

Perhaps you were misinformed (or misunderstood) the requirements?

Regards,

Bill

The user should have been validated when he logged on. I don't think any security group would allow you access to the passwords (which wouldn't be readable anyway).

You can retrieve the userid:

Code:
                                                                       
           EXEC CICS ASSIGN                                             
                USERID(WS-USERID)                                       
           END-EXEC.                                                   


Where WS-USERID is defined in working storage as PIC X(08).
