The resource profile for controlling write access to Adabas files has the following form:
is a physical database ID for the database that contains the file. This value begins with “DB” and is followed by the database ID, which must be left-padded with zeroes so that the ID has five digits. Valid values are 00001 through 99999.
is a file number. This value begins with
and is followed by the file number, which must be left-padded with zeros so that the file number has five digits. Valid values are from 00001 through 99999.
Users that have UPDATE access to the resource profile can use PowerExchange to write data to the Adabas file. Otherwise, access is denied. If you do not define any resource profiles, PowerExchange does not control write access.
You can define generic resource profiles to minimize the number of definitions. For example, the following generic profile in RACF covers all Adabas files in all databases:
The following generic profile in RACF covers all Adabas files in databases 1,000 through 1,999:
