Setting user options

Set the user options you require for each user on a workstation who needs them in the useropts file. Changes do not take effect until HCL Workload Automation is stopped and restarted.

The concept of the useropts file is to contain values for localopts parameters that must be personalized for an individual user. The files must be located in the user_home/.TWS directory of the user. When HCL Workload Automation needs to access data from the localopts file, it looks first to see if the property it requires is stored only or also in the useropts file for the user, always preferring the useropts file version of the value of the key. If a property is not specified when invoking the command that requires it, or inside the useropts and localopts files, an error is displayed.

The main use of the useropts file is to store the user-specific connection parameters used to access the command line client (see Configuring command-line client access authentication). These are the following keys, which are not stored in the localopts file:
User name used to access the master domain manager. The user must be defined in the security file on the master domain manager (see Configuring user authorization (Security file))
Password used to access the master domain manager. The presence of the ENCRYPT label in the password field indicates that the specified setting has been encrypted; if this label is not present, you must exit and access the interface program again to allow the encryption of that field.

A useropts file is created for the TWS_user during the installation, but you must create a separate file for each user that needs to use user-specific parameters on a workstation.

See Localopts details for more detailed information about these options.
