Make Field Userid optional in Secure+ Admin Tool "Save Active" Panel

When you are using Security Exits for C:D Signon, you do not need to specify a userid at signon. I don't need this at the update job for Secure+ as well. Using the "Save Active" Panel, you have to enter a userid, but you can leave the password field empty.

I would expact, that if I don't enter a userid, there will no "USERID=" parameter in the JCL in the update step. If I delete this parameter in the JCL Edit panel, singon and update workes fine.

So having the userid field optional, i could leave it empty and do not have to enter a userid or deleting it in the JCL.

How will this idea be used?
