The following password composition rules can be configured for service tools user IDs:

Service tools password composition rules are configured using DST, SST, or the new SST Security Attribute commands.
- Change SST Security Attributes (CHGSSTSECA)
- Display SST Security Attributes (DSPSSTSECA)
In addition to password rule attributes, the commands support the “service tools password level” attribute and the “allow security-related system values to be changed” attribute.
New commands were added for service tools user ID management. These commands configure the same SST privileges managed through DST or SST.
- Create Service Tools User ID (CRTSSTUSR)
- Change Service Tools User ID (CHGSSTUSR)
- Delete Service Tools User ID (DLTSSTUSR)
