Available from both Command Line Interface (composer) and web interface (Dynamic Workload Console) the new security model introduces some new concepts that simplifies the usage of the Security File. In this post we will see how define accesses from the web console.

For job types with advanced options you have the possibility to let variables and passwords be defined and resolved locally on the IBM Workload Scheduler for z/OS agents.
This is particularly useful in the case of passwords because you are not required to specify them in the job definition. The advantage is that, if the password has to change, you do not modify the job definition, but you change it with the param command locally on the agents (or on the pool agents) that run or may run the job. This feature is not restricted to Windows workstations alone. You can use it also on UNIX, as long as you apply it on job types with advanced options.
