APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • A queue manager is configured to allow CICS transaction to be
    authorized using CICSConnectionUserId. Despite the
    CICSConnectionUserId having sufficient authorities, the CICS
    applications fail with a 2035 (MQRC_NOT_AUTHORIZED). The error
    AMQ5653 will be generated in the queue manager error log. If the
    CICS application is using the CICS user ID 'CICSUSER' and the
    queue manager is configured with a different
    user Id as CICSConnectionUserId then the following error message
    will be generated.
    
    AMQ5653: The user 'CICSUSER' is not defined.
    
    EXPLANATION:
    The system call getpwnam("CICSUSER") failed with errno 3.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users using "CICSConnectionUserID" for authorizing CICS
    transactions
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    This problem occurred because the queue manager used the CICS
    User ID sent from the application instead of the
    CICSConnectionUserId configured in the queue manager for
    authorizing CICS transactions.
    

Problem conclusion

  • MQ has been modified to use the CICSConnectionUserId if
    configured in the queue manager for authorizing CICS
    transactions.
