VT Terminal Session Interrogation

I am attempting to connect to a mainframe using the generic winhllapi text adapter but am having issues with finding the session ID. The issue is coming when I am attempting to interrogate the application. If you look at Attachmate’s template file for the VT session (template.rdox), there is no attribute for the “short name” which is also the session ID. If you compare this to the other template files for the 3270 & 5250 sessions, you will notice there is an attribute:

<Item name="HLLAPIShortName" type="System.String"

<value>A<Value />


in which the session ID is given. Since the session ID is not given for the VT terminal, I am not sure how to interrogate this since PEGA needs the session ID. I’ve looked through all the VT settings and was unable to find the session ID as compared to the other terminals where it is given. I also noticed that for the Attachmate text adapter it looks specifically for .rsf file and not the specific template extension (.rd3x, .rd5x,.rd0x). I’ve attempted to change VT extension to a .rd0x to .rsf but again would complain about the session ID. Also is it possible to interrogate a VT through citrix?
