Error description

  • Ø
    CICS registers zOS Connect services dynamically using the
    SPI.
    When accessing the services from a browser, the user is not
    prompted for userid and password, even with the following
    configured in server.xml:
    
    
    
    The request fails with Error 403: AuthorizationFailed
    
    However, when a service is registered via the
    zosConnectService
    element in server.xml, the prompt is returned.
    

Local fix

  • register the service via the zosConnectService element in
    server.xml

    *                      correctly for z/OS Connect dynamic      *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When registering z/OS Connect services dynamically using the
    SPI, authentication on access to that service may not work
    correctly. The root of the issue is that the auth process does
    not maintain the authenticated user on the request subject.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The authentication process has been modified to always use the
    authenticated user on the request subject.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 8.5.5.9.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
