This subroutine changes to a different user.


      PASS         <user_id>                  FIELD            SHARE? N
      PASS         <aux_password>             FIELD            SHARE? N

This subroutine changes to a different user. The change, if successful, is immediate and all subsequent processes will execute under the new user id. All parameters are required, if any are missing the subroutine will CANCEL.

<user_id> is the User Id you want to switch to (Required). Note that this is not the 3 character Appx user id, but the User Id entered in the O/S Login ID column for users.

<aux_password> is the auxiliary password for this user (Required). You can set this password in Appx System Administration / Security / Users, then use the 'Change Aux Password' option. This password cannot be blank.

The <aux_password> does not have to be the same as the user's O/S password (if they have one), however if it is different, the user will not be able to use the 'New Session' or Alt-F1 key combination to open a new session to the same server. It will fail because the passwords don't match, and they will have to manually log in.
