Reply with quote

Hi
We have an upgrade to the security attributes to our CICS application. With this we have a requirement to unlock the user id automatically when user is locked out.

Current process :
a. When user is locked out, he needs to wait for 30 minutes to get the CICS session to get logged off in order to establish a new session.
b. OR he can call up the Admin person to unlock the user id.

Requirement :
a. To have a process to unlock the user id automatically when it is locked.
b. To have a process not to allow concurrent sessions for a single user in different terminals.

Can you please help.

Best Regards
Hariharan

Hello Hariharan and welcome to the forums,

First, i believe this is nonsense. What good is a security system that provides no security. . .

If this is to be done it needs the direction of your corporate management as well as some implementation by the security admins.

If the user must call for help to get "back in" they should be less likely to lock themselves out.

limited information = limited answers

1 Change the logic in the current application to handle the new requirements.

or

2 write a new security handling process and interface current
application with it.


or

3 hire some consultants that can perform 1 or 2 above

IIRC the option to prevent multiple signon from the same user is already there and must simply be activated
