3 Ways to Use IBM i Authority Collections by Carol Woodbury
Recently the new Authority Collections feature was added to the IBM i and is very easy to use, but not obvious. Carol discusses three scenarios in which you would use Authority Collections and how to solve each of those scenarios. Those scenarios include:
- Profiles with Too Much Authority - This scenario could include a service account that has been granted *ALLOBJ special authority because you may not be able to determine which authority is actually required. Authority Collections can help with this.
- Authority Failure Occurs - A user could receive an authority failure notification and the audit journal won't list what authority is required. Authority Collections can help with this.
- Determining Where Authority Is Coming From - A developer believes he secured an object, but users are still able to access it. The developer can not determine where the user is getting their authority. Authority Collections can help with this.
