Reference Type: Supported, Category: Signon/Security, Integration Agreement: 4440


This extrinsic function was released with Kernel Patch XU*8.0*284. It is called by applications to check and see if the application is running in a Production or a Test account.

The Ask if Production Account option [XU SID ASK] on the Kernel Management Menu [XUKERNEL], asks if the current account is the Production account. It returns the following values:

The Startup PROD check option [XU SID STARTUP] can be scheduled for startup so that when TaskMan starts the SID is checked. The first check each day gets the current SID and compares it with the stored SID to see if they match.
