Question:

Endevor ISPF interface and Quickedit are failing with RACF errors for the lack of access authority to the element catalog and other libraries used  --


IEC161I MW.NDER2.APPLDV.VR.BASE 
ICH408I USER(MWTSPM2 ) GROUP(MWD2 ) NAME(ENDEVOR SY2 PGM ID ) 841 
MW.NDER2.APPLDV.VR.BASE CL(DATASET ) VOL(GZUP01) 
INSUFFICIENT ACCESS AUTHORITY 
FROM MW.NDER2.APPLDV.*.** (G) 
ACCESS INTENT(CONTROL) ACCESS ALLOWED(READ ) 


Also getting Footprint errors attempting to do FG Adds:

C1G0119E FOOTPRINT COMPROMISED: NO IDR RECORD

Answer:

The probem is in Dyna-Step 3.1 which should swap to the Alternate UserID.

There is a parameter that must be added to the startup configuration for Dyna-Step's DYSSERV server:

DYNASPCL DISP=SHR,
COMPAT=ENDEVOR,                       <<== Add
FILE=STEPLIB,
FREEALL=NOFREEALL

This is an assembler macro, the options can be dynamically assembled at startup if the server is configured for that.

This fix is not documented in the Dyna-Step manual and there is no mention of it in the samples in the product target libraries.  This was not found on the Dyna-Step support site either.
