DWC 9.5 on USS (Security RACF and Start/Stop via ZOS)

1 - With the package DWC_USS_S390.pax.Z who is the DWC 9.5 FP1 package for Workload scheduler console for Z/OS (USS) , i want to use SAF Z/OS RACF for security access (with Angel process)
I don't found Template for this configuration in :
.../DWC_DATA/usr/servers/dwcServer/configDropins/templates/authentication
Only for LDAP or Basic or openid.
2 - For start and stop the DWC we have two scripts :
startAppServer.sh and stopAppServer.sh
i want to use another method with a procedure or jcl for compatibility with our business . for example
//TDWCWLP JOB MSGCLASS=H
//*OPCWLP PROC PARMS='dwcServer'
//OPCWLP PROC PARMS='poc'
// SET INSTDIR='/opt/lpp/bbl/sbblzfs/current'
// SET USERDIR='/psyst/tdwc95/WlpPoc/19.0.0.3/usr'
//* SET USERDIR='/psyst/tdwc95/95Fp1Console/usr'
//WLP EXEC PGM=BPXBATSL,REGION=0M,TIME=NOLIMIT,
// PARM='PGM &INSTDIR./lib/native/zos/s390x/bbgzsrv &PARMS'
//WLPUDIR DD PATH='&USERDIR.'
//STDOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//STDERR DD SYSOUT=*
// PEND
//* ================================================================ */
//TDWCWLP EXEC OPCWLP

1 - I tested with success start/stop the DWC with this procedure but not supported bye IBM.
2 - I tested with success a standalone Liberty profile connected to RACF via ANGEL PROCESS and installed DWC.ear and Zconnector.ear in this WLP with success but doesn't work because it's an installation by WLP and not by the script dwcinst.sh
