Local fix

Problem summary

  • The maximum timeout that an administrator can specify with the
    -t option in the tacmd login command may result too high for
    some customer security policies. This APAR introduces the
    possibility to reduce the maximum timeout to only 15 minutes in
    a centralized way.
    
    In order for this APAR to be properly implemented in your
    environment, a new environment variable,
    TACMD_LOGIN_REDUCED_TIMEOUT,  must be set on your HUB TEMS.
    Allowed values Y/YES. When this setting is in effect an error is
    returned by the tacmd login command if a value greater than 15
    is specified in the -t option.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code as been changed to provide this new functionality.
