    When a Job gets executed on the z/OS Agent
    with the option: JCL type - Automation Engine
    but the execution is unsuccessful and resulted by the following messages:
    -----
    U02005047 It was not possible to start job 'JOBS.IEFBR14'. Invalid password for User ID '...'!
    or
    U02005046 It was not possible to start job 'JOBS.IEFBR14'. Invalid User ID '...'!
    -----

     

    First: the Login object should be verified to make it sure there is no typo in the login data! 

     

    -----
    Second: 

     

    If the error still preventing the successful execution,
    the following settings should be checked:  

    -Login object - Login info / user name should be changed from lowercase to UPPERCASE        
    -Agent ini: add the option:  "PasswordMixedCase=1"

     

    After the ini change the restart of the agent is necessary and the execution should be successful. 
    This issue is related to the actual z/OS authorization settings: User ID case sensibility.
