The PWDEXP parameter displays the expiration value in number of days when a newly added or changed password will expire.

The PWDEXP value can be from 0 to 255 or -1, which indicates that CCASTAT has not yet been converted for the Password Expiration feature. The value of 0 is useful when a site wants to force all the passwords in a CCASTAT file to expire, and no one can log in with any ID that expires.

The PWDEXP value is excluded from the VIEW ALL command output, but the system manager can view it individually. If you have not installed the Password Expiration feature and you issue a VIEW command for the PWDEXP parameter, PWDEXP=-1 is returned.

Model 204 obtains the value of the PWDEXP parameter from the CCASTAT file. Therefore, each time CCASTAT is read from disk, Model 204 updates the current in-memory values to reflect any changes that were made in the CCASTAT file.
