Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: Users of zSecure Audit exploiting the audit  *
    *                 compliance testing framework.                *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: zSecure Audit does not perform the      *
    *                      UTF-8 -> EBCDIC value conversion in the *
    *                      compliance reports.                     *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the PTF provided.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    When a TEST_FIELD_VALUE and TEST_FIELD_BASE_VALUE field values
    (AU.R compliance reporting, newlist type COMPLIANCE) are in
    UTF-8 encoding (like DB2 object names), the zSecure Audit
    displays these fields without conversion to EBCDIC so that
    unprintable characters are displayed in such fields.
    

Problem conclusion

  • zSecure Audit has been modified so that it performs the UTF-8 ->
    EBCDIC translation for TEST_FIELD_VALUE and
    TEST_FIELD_BASE_VALUE field values if needed.
