Description the procedure used to gain access to the system.

The Advanced Pick logon procedure consists of a user prompt which is usually "Advanced Pick O/S - Enter your Pick user id:". To gain access to the system, the user should type in his or her user ID which corresponds to an item in the Pick users file. After entering the ID, the user may be prompted for some combination of user password, master dictionary, and master dictionary password depending on the user macro.

The logon prompt can be modified by changing the "logon" item in the "mds,," file.

On releases 6.2 and above, the "master dictionary:" prompt can be changed by creating a message item called "md" in the current "messages" file.


On both R83 and Advanced Pick 6.1 and above, the logon process has a mechanism designed to keep noisy lines from causing system degradation due to repeated logon prompts. This mechanism locks the user out of the logon process after three failed logon attempts. At this point, the user must type the sequence "(space)(return)(return)" to restart the logon prompt.

On Advanced Pick 6.1 and above, the logon lockout can be toggled with the "logon-lock" verb. By default, the lockout is disabled on Advanced Pick.

tcl.logon

Command tcl.logon Verb: Access/TCL
Applicable release versions: AP
Category TCL (746)
Description logs on a port, other than the one currently being used, onto a specific account.

The process prompts with the following:

line,user-id,user-password,md,md-password:

"line" is the port.number to log on.

"user-id" is the user-id (must be in "dm,users,").

"user-password" is the user-password (if defined).

"md" is the account name to log on to.

"md-password" is the account password (if defined).

The port can NOT already be logged on.

This command is also useful for invoking "background" tasks on another port. Background or "phantom" tasks may also be invoked using the phantom processor (see the "z" commands).
Syntax logon {(p)}
line,user-id,user-password,md,md-password:
Options p Starts process as a "phantom" line. Note that this does not have the same meaning as what is often considered a "phantom", where the process spawns a new process workspace. Rather, this option requires an existing unused port, just like any other port being used for a remote logon. In this context, "phantom" means that it is treated like a Spooler process. This means that the logon sequence is suppressed, which turns off the display of the time and date logged on, the "welcome" message" and the automatic update of the ACC file. (R83)
Example
logon<return>
line,user-id,user-password,md,md-password:0,dm,,dm

This logs line 0 (zero) on to the user-id "dm" with no user password, 
then on to the account "dm" which also has no password.
