Good day, We are in the process of changing the CICS internet login protocol from basic to form based authentication. This requires placing a token inside the HTML referencing the item '&QUERY_STRING' as defined on page 80 of the CICS Internet Guide. Nothing is mentioned concerning the format of this. In searching the internet, I found only one COBOL program that even comes close to referencing this item. I believe all I need to do is place the appropriate information within the pre-existing program calls that lying within the HTML that is already set up. This passes the form based authentication string to the form based authentication process (modified versions of DFH$WBSA, DFH$WBSC, DFH$WBSN) and bypasses the user id/password screen. My question is, what does the exact string look like? Please advise. Thank you.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I’m not sure is this is exactly what your asking. We have a couple of apps that use the web interface. We put in a URL like this –

http://mvsd.nt.gov.au:3012/cics/ZZW1/CICCW000

and we get the signon screen which has changed the URL to -

http://mvsd.nt.gov.au:3012/cics/ZZW1/CICCW000?amobmwma

The amobmwma then needs to be passed each time. This string is a unique string for each user/session.
