Logging in to CICS CESL with TOTP

You can log in to a CICS® CESL transaction with a valid TOTP OTP token code.


Perform the following steps:

  1. Begin to log in to the CICS CESL transaction with your user name.
  2. Run the TOTP application.
  3. Tap the account you created to select it.
  4. Generate the TOTP OTP. This OTP is valid for 15, 30, or 60 seconds as determined by your security administrator and can be used only once.
  5. Manually enter or copy/paste the OTP password as appropriate.
    On the z/OS® system, TOTP validates the OTP and allows or denies the logon.
