Security for Data Maps

Security for Data Maps

PowerExchange checks PowerExchange-specific resource profiles to determine whether to permit access to data maps. For this security checking to occur, you must specify the following parameters in the DBMOVER configuration file:
  • 2 in the first parameter of SECURITY statement
  • Y for the DM_SUBTASK parameter
PowerExchange then uses the MVS System Authorization Facility (SAF) interface to check access to the resource profiles.
By default, PowerExchange checks resource profiles in the FACILITY class. Use the RACF_CLASS parameter in the DBMOVER configuration file to specify a different class for checking security profiles. If you specify a different class, it must be defined in RACF or the security product you use, with a resource name that has a maximum length of 8 bytes.
If you specify 2 in the first parameter of SECURITY statement and Y for the DM_SUBTASK parameter, you must specify a resource profile for data maps. Otherwise, PowerExchange fails access.


We’d like to hear from you!
