Hello friends/community.

I'd lke to test mach of userid/password in z/OS CA ACF2 environment by using Rexx.
There is such way in OPSrexx (var = OPSECURE('P', 'userid', 'password', 'newpassword')  ), but this function does not work outside of OPS, where I getting error:

Maybe I do some error, or this should not work outside of OPS (as stated in documentation).

Is or will be implemented such support for Rexx as well ?
Or at least, is there such option/function in USS (zOS 2.1) ?

If not for all question, can someone give an advice, help how exactly I can create such functionality ?

Thank you
