To Create an ESMAC User

Note: This procedure is supported for backward compatibility only.

To start ESMAC:

  1. Access the Enterprise Server Administration screen for your installation.
  2. In the table of enterprise server instances, check that the server you want has started, and if not, start it.
  3. In the Status column of the enterprise server instance to monitor, click Details.

    The Details screen for the server is displayed.

  4. On the Details screen, select the Server > Control tab, then click ES Monitor & Control.

    The Enterprise Server Monitoring and Control (ESMAC) screen is displayed.

To create an ESMAC user:

  1. Click Users.

    The Users page is displayed

  2. Click New.

    The CICS SNT page is displayed.

  3. In the field Name, enter the name to be used by this user when logging in.
  4. Optionally, you can enter a short description for the user; enter it in the field Description.
  5. In the field Password, enter a password for the user.
  6. In the field Repeat PW, re-enter the password. This ensures that you type the password correctly.
  7. If you want the password always to be entered in upper case, check Upper case.
  8. In the field Operator ID, enter an operator ID for this user. This is optional.
  9. In the field Timeout, enter a timeout period, in minutes, for this user. This is optional.

    If the user does not interact with ESMAC for more minutes than defined in this field, security permissions revert to the default permissions.

  10. To set what aspects of a server and its definitions a user can change:
    1. Check Yes in the Definition Access group
    2. Click on the required dropdown, and select one of:
      • No - the user cannot read or update the selected definition
      • Upd - the user can read and update the selected definition
      • Rd - the user can read the selected definition

    By default, the user cannot read or update definitions; that is, the Definition Access, Yes check box is unchecked, and all definitions are set to No.

    If you set the definitions to Rd or Upd, these only have an effect if the Definition Access, Yes check box is checked.

    To set all definitions to No, Upd or Rd, click the all dropdown and select No, Rd or Upd, respectively.

  11. Click Add.

    The user is added to the list of users. The CICS SNT page is redisplayed, enabling you to change any details for this user.


You can ignore the controls Group prefix, Oper Class, and those for resource keys, security keys, and surrogate security keys.
