Enabling CommCell Console Authentication of Oracle Third Party Command Line Restore Jobs

You can use this additional setting to have the CommCell Console authenticate RMAN restore jobs to ensure that the user has the correct credentials and has included a valid token file in the job request.

When this additional setting is enabled, the user that initiates the third party command line backup and restore job is displayed in the job manager and reports.

Best Practice: Inform users that when they use third party command line operations, they must use qlogin (with the -f and -u options) to generate a token file and then supply the token file in the third party command line operations.
