Error description

  • IBM z/OS Debugger v14.2
    
    When using the Debug Profile Service API to manipulate debug
    profiles, the user must provide an existing userid and password
    to connect to the host system.
    
    Currently, the password is capitalized when the debug profile
    request is passed to the host, so if the password contains
    mixed case characters, this might cause invalid password
    messages IRR013I or ICH408I to be displayed on the host,
    preventing the user login.
    
    The Debug Profile Service will be updated to keep the case of
    the password when passing the request.
