Trying to develop a generic FTPJOB process where a submitting users sets the host_a_password or host_b_password using a password entered via a prompt set.  I was planning to use the &UC4_JOBMD to de-crypt the password, but can't get the de-crypt to work. Realize now the the method is only for OS Agents.

Trying to develop above solution due to the quantity of users and short time span of user password expiration for the TEST, QA and User Acceptance Testing environments versus Service Accounts in the Production Environment.  Note: the quick password expiration is primarly for a mainframe with high security restrictions

Has anybody previously created such a solution or have an idea of a solution?
