Authorization to Run PowerExchange Listener Commands on i5/OS

Authorization to Run PowerExchange Listener Commands on
i5/OS

You can configure PowerExchange to authorize users to issue the PowerExchange Listener LISTTASK and STOPTASK commands through the iSeries SNDLSTCMD interface, the PowerExchange Navigator, and the DTLUTSK utility on i5/OS.
In the DBMOVER configuration file on the i5/OS system that is the target of PowerExchange Listener commands, set the first parameter in the SECURITY statement to 2. PowerExchange checks security objects in the PowerExchange data library to determine whether the user ID supplied on the LISTTASK or STOPTASK command is authorized to run LISTTASK and STOPTASK commands.
During the installation process, PowerExchange creates the security objects for the LISTTASK and STOPTASK commands with a default public authority of *EXCLUDE. To authorize a user to issue LISTTASK and STOPTASK commands, grant the user *USE authority to the security objects for the commands. For example, to authorize a user to issue a LISTTASK command to a PowerExchange Listener running on an i5/OS system, grant the user *USE access to the
datalib
/AUTHTSKLST security object on that system.
The following table lists the access authority that the PowerExchange Listener requires to run LISTTASK and STOPTASK commands:
