APAR status

  • Closed as fixed if next.

Error description

  • Userid's sent via the network through a client connection are
    limited to 12 characters or if the id is not recognizable, the
    userid of the connection process is used which negatively
    impacts security.
    

Local fix

  • The workaround is to limit the userids to 12 characters or use
    the MCAUSER parameter of the server connection channel to set
    the userid.
    

Problem summary

  • USERS AFFECTED:
    All users
    
    PLATFORMS AFFECTED:
    All supported platforms
    
    SUMMARY:
    When WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition (WMQFTE) connects to an
    MQ queue manager in client mode a user ID is not passed on the
    connect. This causes MQ to grant the connect attempt a default
    user ID which could lead to connection attempts being rejected
    with the following error in the MQ log:
    
    AMQ8075: Authorization failed because the SID for entity
    <userID> cannot be obtained
    
    This will also happen when connecting to MQ in client mode using
    the WMQFTE MQ Explorer GUI extensions or WMQFTE remote tools
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix

  • An iFix is available on request.
