Client Manager Password/Passphrase Support

    ​Currently the client manager in Gen 8.6 only supports an 8 character password in the Server Security Parameters section of the server configuration window which has traditionally been the limit for RACF passwords on the mainframe.  RACF can now support longer passwords and pass phrases.  Is there an enhancement on the horizon for the password field in the Client Manager to allow for passwords breater than 8 characters?

    Stacy,

      There have been a few inquiries on PassPhrase through Support in the last couple weeks.  A Communities Ideation has been created at the following post which I recommend you vote it up.

      Also, Gen Product Management is aware of the PassPhrase request.  I recommend you post your Business Impact and timeline to this post or to the Communities Ideation.  This will give management information on how to prioritize it.

    Cheers,

    ​Thanks Andy !

    The business impact or reason for the request is to meet the requirement of a recent internal security and applications audit to have a stronger password in our applications.

    The timeline we're trying to meet is EOY 2020.
