Tech Tip from Karina Pulinx , Principal Support Engineer , for August 20 , 2015 .
You created an Ideal User with User ID $20 but cannot login to Ideal .
You get message
1-IDADUEDS07E - USR not valid for CA-IDEAL SIGNON
but cannot see what is wrong .
The CA Ideal Administration Guide documents :
Creating a CA Ideal User Definition
The fields on the User Definition Fill-in consist of:
■ Person name-One- to 15-character identification of the person (user) being defined. This name must be unique at the site. CA Ideal initializes Person name to the name entered in the CREATE command, if a name was supplied there. You cannot change Person name once it is entered and accepted. If you want a new Person name, you must delete the user definition and create a new one. The Person name can be one to 15 non-blank characters and can be any combination of letters, digits, or national characters except the first character cannot be a digit.
The Person Name does not have to be the same as the security ID or the monitor op-ID used to logon if the UIDCHK parameter of the IDOPTSCB macro is set to NO. However, unless a default user ID (DFLTUSR) is specified to determine the CA Ideal authorizations, you must still define the security ID or op-ID as an alias for the Person Name in the dictionary facility.
If DESTINATION MAIL is used, the Person Name must be a valid CA eMail+ signon or alias.
■ IDEAL User ID-One- to three-character user identification. You must enter this user ID to make the user valid for CA Ideal and it must be unique to the site. Once defined in a User Definition Fill-in, you cannot change the CA Ideal user ID. If you want a new CA Ideal user ID, delete the user definition and create a new one. The user ID can be one to three non-blank characters and can be any combination of letters, digits, or national characters. (This one- to three-character user identification becomes an alias for the PERSON in the dictionary facility.)
Note: In CICS, the CA Ideal user ID must match the CICS op-ID unless either the UIDCHK parameter of the IDOPTSCB macro is set to NO or security is enabled (SECRTY=Y in the SC00OPTS table).
The reason for this error is that IDEAL User IDs "$19" (x'5BF1F9') and "$20" (x'5BF2F0') are not valid due to a CA Datadictionary internal use .
We recommend to not use $00 to $99 .
R&D will not write an Ideal editor fix for this but our documentation will be updated .
