SE60116 - OSP-OTHER USER DEFINED AUTHORITIES

 APAR (Authorized Program Analysis Report)

Abstract

OSP-OTHER USER DEFINED AUTHORITIES

Error Description

Remote journaling for IFS files. The journal replay is not      
handling the User Defined authorities.                          

Problem Summary

The Copy Object (CPY) and Copy To Stream File (CPYTOSTMF)      
commands can copy data and authority information from an object
in the QSYS.LIB file system to other file systems. Using        
traditional interfaces like the Grant Object Authority          
(GRTOBJAUT) command, users can set detailed data authorities for
a save file or data file object. Some combinations of those    
detailed data authorities do no exactly map to *RWX data        
authorities reported and used by integrated file system        
interfaces such as Display Authority (DSPAUT). In these cases  
the data authority is reported as 'USER DEF' (user-defined).    
There is currently no interface that allows users to directly  
change the authority of an integrated file system object to a  
user-defined state such as this.                                

Problem Conclusion

The QlgChangeAuthority() API will be enhanced to allow users to
specify a set of values similar to the AUT keyword of the      
GRTOBJAUT command. This will allow users to duplicate          
user-defined authority sets for the file systems that support  
those detailed data authorities. See the special instructions  
for more information on how to use the API.
