Does someone know what EIB value/commarea value/whatever value stores the UserID used to signon into a CICS region? I want to interrogate this value in my application program. Thanks.

You can get from the ASSIGN command.

If you are allowed to use the INQUIRE TERMINAL command, which is a system programmer function, you can retrieve the user id associated with the terminal. The user id is not an EIB field and could only be retrieved from DFHCOMMAREA if another program placed it in there.

Some sites provide a way to retrieve the user id without using the INQUIRE TERMINAL command -- contact your site support group to determine if such a way exists at your site.
