authfile in dsjob command

While working on Datastage CLI commands, in some cases when you are working on server which is having multiple DataStage server install Or your user id is don't have sufficient permission to login on DataStage, we have to give DataStage server details like DataStage server host, username, password etc in the command line. But, this creates a small issue, anyone can see the username and password details which you have used in the command line by checking the server command history or other ways.

                           IBM Datastage provides a way to secure your username and password with authfile parameter. Today, we will see what it is and how we can use in our command line statement.


How to use in commands:

dsjob -authfile c:\auth_file.txt -lprojects
dsjob -authfile c:\auth_file.txt -ljobs dstage1
