11.5 Configure Sessions to use ID Manager to Assign Terminal IDs

From InfoConnect, you can establish host connections using the Terminal ID Management Add-On.

The ID Manager configures and monitors a pool of resource IDs that can be used to establish a host session. Resource IDs work in place of the required address or identifier for a particular terminal type. This eliminates the need to configure a terminal ID (GPID or LU) for each and every client. You can use ID Manager with 3270, 5250, UTS, ALC and T27 terminal emulation sessions.

When a session is configured to use ID Manager, InfoConnect obtains an ID before the session connects and then holds on to the ID throughout the session. When the session disconnects, the ID is returned to its pool. A different ID may be used the next time the session connects.

NOTE:The Terminal ID Manager Add-on requires the base installation of the Management and Security Server, which provides the Administrative Server. It is not included with the Management and Security Server license. To activate this product, you must purchase a separate license.


  • A Micro Focus centralized management server, with a Terminal ID Manager configured as shown in the Terminal ID Manager Guide in the Host Access Management and Security Server Documentation.

  • You need to know the complete URL for the ID Manager server. For example, https://servername:port/tidm. If you use the default port for http (80) or https (443), the colon and port number are not required.

  • You need to know the parameters that the ID Manager requires to allocate an ID (for example the pool name).
