Question:

Why can't I view the History records of transfers by all users when I use the "Get History" tab in the CA XCOM GUI?

 

Answer:

CA XCOM Data Transport checks security by verifying that the user requesting history records is a member of the XCOMADM group and/or the XCOMSADM group. CA XCOM Data Transport returns records as follows:

   •  If the user is not a member of either XCOMADM or XCOMSADM, then the transfers returned are limited to those containing that user's user ID.

   •  If the user is a member of XCOMADM, then CA XCOM Data Transport does both of the following:

          ? Returns transfers in the queue for all users and allows operator functions against those transfers.

          ? Returns history records for all transfers for the target machine (SYSNAME, SYSID), regardless of the owner.

   •  If the user is also a member of XCOMSADM, then CA XCOM Data Transport returns history records for any machine included in the history table.
