Using Active Directory to supply sign on credentials for IDMS application
"Hello everybody,

I am not expecting this question to produce a positive response but I have been asked whether any other IDMS sites have a successful implementation of using the Active Directory in Windows to supply sign on credentials to a Mainframe IDMS application.

TIA

"Hi All,

Our application DBA has been using a product called SUPERSRT for
sorting purposes during reorganizations. Occasionally there is a problem
with it.

Does anyone have any idea who the vendor is for this utility ? I realize that
it might be one of the dreaded 'home grown' utilities. Any insight would be
helpful.

Cheers, Andy Daly

Re: Using Active Directory to supply sign on credentials for IDMS application
"Funny you should ask. I now have a custom signon in my test CV that uses

the IDMS TCPIP interface to call Active Directory and allows the user to
validate their
Active Directory user ID and password with Active Directory (ADAM).

Our Active directory group has developed web services that can be called
to
interact with ADAM. As a result of the call to the Authorize User web
service,
Active directory returns an XML document that has a simple
Authorized=True or False. Once the Active directory user id and password
are validated,
I call another web service that passes me the RACF user id and encrypted
password
mapped to the user in the active directory. I then pass those to RACF
for the real
signon.

The objective for us was to get to a single signon for the users. Even
though
they will still have a mainframe logon, their only interaction with
their mainframe
id will be to refresh the password when it expires. The new password
will be
encrypted and stored in the Active directory mapping.
