I have written a CLP to create a standard for creating new user profiles on the iSeries.
I am pulling key parameters from a data file and passing them as parameters rather than hard code the values.
When I run:
DCL VAR(&INLPGML) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(10)
DCL VAR(&INLPGMP) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(10)
CRTUSRPRF USRPRF(&VDUSER) PASSWORD (&TMPPSWD) PWDEXP(&PWDEXP)
STATUS(&STATUS) USRCLS(&USRCLS) INLPGM((&INLPGML *TCAT '/' *TCAT INLPGMP))
I get message CPD0078 Value 'JDFOBJA73/' for parameter INLPGM not a valid name.
I first tried using one 20 position parm. That did not work either. All of the other parms get passed fine.
The INLPGM parameter in the command CRTUSRPRF isn't a "LIST" of items; it is a qualified object name. When you use double parentheses ((some value)) this indicates a "LIST" of items. For example, the SNDNETMSG command uses a list for the TOUSRID parameter:
SNDNETMSG MSG('Send this message to many users...') + TOUSRID((USER1 SYSTEM1) + (USER2 SYSTEM1) + (USER33 SYSTEM8) + (USER98 SYSTEM66))
The correct syntax for the INLPGM parameter of the CRTUSRPRF command would use single parentheses:
INLPGM(&INLPGML *TCAT '/' *TCAT INLPGMP)
I hope this helps... Good Luck!
PS - Have you considered creating a "model" user profile with all your defaults and then using RTVUSRPRF in your CLP to retrieve them from this model for use in the CRTUSRPRF command?
