How to create a DSC restore job with teradata userid/pwd taken from XML file instead of prompt

Dears,

I am automating creation of BAR (DSC) restore jobs through XML file with "dsc create_job -f xmlfile" command.

 

However could not find any option in XML to specify Teradata userid/password. Hence I have to enter them manually at shell prompt during job creation.  As  I need to create 50+ jobs and wondering any XML tag available to keep userid/pwd OR any other option where I can keep user-id/pwd and DSC can pickup and create job in batch-mode (without waiting for user-input).. 

 

Advance thanks for your suggestions.

'llo,

 

The exclusion of the backup credentials is by design, a way to get around this is documented in the following KCS article

ie. pipe the account & password into the command
