Custom Application to set/get TACACS+ information a User

I have to develop a custom application that sets/gets TACACS+ information for a particular user profile.

I was able to set values in "TACACS+ Enable Control" form and "TACACS+ Enable Password" form using action code 105.

But I am not able to set "Use separate password" flag and separate password in "TACACS+ Enable Password" form,

and TACACS+ Outbound Password . Can somebody give me the actioncodes and show how the entries in accountactions.csv file

will look for the mentioned operations that is:

1) to update TACACS+ outbound password, and

2) to set "Use separate password" flag and separate password in "TACACS+ Enable Password" form

My next question would be:

How do we retrive TACACS+ outbound password and attribute values in "TACACS+ Enable Password" form dump.txt

I was able to retrieve values for attributes in TACACS+ Enable Password" form

Following is a sample entry in dump.txt for these attributes:

App01 enable_passwd ESTRING 0x0018 6a 35 9b 76 ce c3 81 9c 6d 1c d5 41 06 1a 4e 07 92 8d 50 06 de d4 2a 89

App01 max_priv STRING 0,3 (used for attributes in TACACS+ Enable Password" form)

App01 max_priv_LENGTH INTEGER 3

I also checked the link:

But I did not find satisfactory information.

Please reply ASAP, your help will be most appreciated.

1) Use code 104

2) Use code 102; this sets the flag with the ENABLE_LEVEL_STATIC flag set

Do not use the dump.txt for retrieving values. The format of this file is not published.

All passwords are encrypted.

Could you give examples for cases 1) and 2).

Could you provide an alternate way to retrieve values especially TACACS+ Enable Password attributes. I am lost here.

Awaiting your reply,
