ATTR Keyword with the FDT—Add or Replace FDT Field Attributes

Last update March 19, 2015

Valid on z/OS, z/VSE, and z/VM.

Use the ATTR keyword to add or replace attributes to a field in the FDT Record.

This keyword has the following format:

TSS ADDTO(FDT) FDTNAME(field name) 
               FDTCODE(hex code)
               MAXLEN(40)
               ATTR(MIXED,NONDISP,NOXTRPRP,XTRPRP,attribute)
  • MIXED
    Allows display of mixed-case data for a field in the FDT Record. If ATTR(MIXED) is not given, the information is added to the user in uppercase.
  • NONDISP
    Prohibits display of a field when an administrator issues a TSS LIST command on the ACID. The data can be extracted or modified using the Application Interface or the RACROUTE macro, but it does not display using TSS LIST.
  • NOXTRPRP
    Prohibits successful extract/replace call results for the field from being sent to the recovery file and propagated to other systems. You can change this attribute via a “TSS REPLACE” command for user-defined fields in the FDT and pre-defined fields in the FDT where CA did not already include this attribute.
  • XTRPRP
    Allows successful extract/replace call results for the field to be sent to the recovery file and propagated to other systems. This attribute does not display when you list the field. You can change this attribute via a “TSS REPLACE” command for user-defined fields in the FDT and pre-defined fields in the FDT where CA did not already include this attribute or NOXTRPRP.

This keyword is used with:

  • The commands ADDTO and REPLACE
  • The RDT and FDT records
  • MISC1(RDT) authority

The following reserved fields are permanently set to NOXTRPRP:

    Okay, so it's nice that you have withlabl, asispass, etc., listed here, but here's a question, where is the doc that tells you what that field description is?

      Bobbie,

      These reserved fields are permanently set to NOXTRPRP. But as far as getting descriptions, many of them are names that system components/apps specify to EXTRACT information. Some are defined in Appendix B: RACF Database Templates of the IBM Security Server RACROUTE Macro Reference. In that document, though, note that they do not always have the same name. For example, ASISPASS (EXTRACTED name) in this CA Top Secret topic is field name PASSASIS in the IBM manual.

      If you would like more assistance, please let me know.
