Using Password for User Authentication

Password authentication is the most commonly used form of user authentication. It is enabled by default and uses the RACF system password of the user.

There is however a case where it cannot be used in Tectia Server for IBM z/OS: when running Tectia client programs from JCL there is no facility for getting the password interactively from the user. You can set up password in a file or data set, or preferably use public-key authentication and a private key without a passphrase. See Using Public Key for User Authentication.

For more information on password authentication, see Tectia Server for IBM z/OS User Manual.
