Enhance DataStage ODBC Component to support PGSQL MSI token authentication

Dear, in order to meet the requirements of the company's security, we have changed the connection to the PGSQL database from traditional user name and password login to MSI token authentication and Token can be used as a password to connect to PGSQL. But after many tests, we cannot connect to PGSQL correctly. We also submitted the corresponding case TS011610684 to IBM, but unfortunately, we were told that DataStage does not support connecting PGSQL through token. As told by support, DataStage currently is working as designed, a 256 character limit for the length of a password, so it will probably need a change to both DataStage and the driver to support more than 256 characters length password. The following are the users and corresponding tokens of the MSI we use for you reference.
