APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Most password fields in RIT allow you to enter a tag value.
    This must be entered in the form %%my_password%% as there is no
    right-click menu.
    
    It is not possible to do this in the Identity object in
    Architecture School > Physical View
    
    WORKAROUND:
    
    Use a tag name in the Password field in the Run Command test
    action.

    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * If a user attempts to use a tag (i.e. an environment tag) in *
    * the password field for an Identity Store then any logon      *
    * attempts using that identity will fail.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • This problem was caused because Rational Integration Tester was
    not evaluating the tag at runtime.  The problem has been
    corrected in version 8.6.0.2 of Rational Integration Tester and
    a tag can now be used to specify a password value for an
    Identity Store.
