We are using ACF2 for our z/OS security package. As such we have batch accounts specifically for connect direct that are set with no passwords and can only be accessed via other secure JCL procedures. As such we can't manage them via the SCC Configuraton Management features for Functional Authorities and/or user proxies as they require a password. Can this feature be added to disable this requirement that the passwords be required so that this feature can be used in our environment. Need an ability to optionally turn off the password requirement for the field. I agree this should be on by default, but there should be a way to overide this to adapt to different environments. I understand this may be not a normal behavior but it is the nature of our environment.
