Add & PasswordExit parameters to Functional Authorities

Currently Password Exit feature for Connect Direct for Windows allows to specify "" & "" only in the "Initparms" section. The aim is to add more granularity to the configuration and provide an option to setup "" & "" for particular Functional Authority.

How will this idea be used?

This will allow to use "" and "" parameters per each Functional Authority separately.

    Thank you for your patience as we worked on this enhancement. I'm pleased to share that it has been delivered in C:D Windows v6.2.0.4. Please upgrade to this version by pulling it down from IBM's Fix Central website.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed this request thoroughly with my team and we believe that adding more granularity to the password exit configuration would be useful. We will accept this and look to add it to our roadmap moving forward. Thank you for leveraging our RFE tool and please don't hesitate to open new requests for other ideas we should consider.
