Retrieve Password of type Unix using GET_LOGIN

  • 1.  Retrieve Password of type Unix using GET_LOGIN

    Posted 03-20-2018 02:31 PM
    Hello all,

    Gone through the docs and came to know that we can only read the login entries of self-defined systems or applications, not from operating systems!!  Getting an OS password is a serious security concern, but I am curious to know if we have any other possibility to retrieve them from login object. 


    Thanks,
    Srujan.

    Hi

    No, thats not possible.

    You can try it yourself by using GET_LOGIN & the Job messenger trick - with a Unix or Windows Login.
    You will get an ERR message like:

    U00020679 Runtime error in object 'JOBI.GENERIC.DECRYPT_PW' line '00014': The provided type 'WINDOWS' is not allowed.

    cheers, Wolfgang

    I tried and got the same run time time error, but I haven't used Job messenger. 

    Thanks,
    Srujan.

    Hi Srujan_Pathuri_9871

    Yeah, correct - the error occurs at scriptline GET_LOGIN and aborts, so no need of the Job messenger thing :-)

    thx, Wolfgang
