Password phrase support in WSim

Technote (FAQ)


Does WSim support passphrases?


One of the functions implemented with the installation of PTF PQ94132 is the ability to mask 3270 passwords so that anyone reading a script or log output would be unable to see the actual password associated with a specific userid.

The Workload Simulator team can confirm that this encryption capability is able to handle password phrases which is included in Z/OS 1.10 and later releases. The encryption will handle the 100 character maximum when encrypting and decrypting a password phrase in a script and will substitute asterisks for any password phrase in the log list output.

There is no additional work required of the user to implement this ability. It will occur automatically in the normal day to day use of the Workload Simulator product.
