Introduction:

Every function in the CA Ideal environment is controlled through an authorization - either at the individual Ideal System level or at the user definition level. The Display ATZ command will show these authorizations.

Instructions:

The easiest way to see your different functions and their authorization levels is to log into CA Ideal on the CICS system and issue the DISPLAY ATZ command. This will show you each command and the level of authorization needed.

Here is a sample of some of the output:

IDOPTSCB  LAST MODIFIED  10/25/16  10.34                                                                          

AUTHORIZATION NAMES                     PRIMARY LEVEL   SECONDARY LEVEL

     ALTER-PROGRAM                      ADMIN           N/A            

     ALTER-SIGNON-PANEL                 ADMIN           N/A            

     CATALOG-DATAVIEW                   DATAVIEW-ADMIN  N/A            

     COMPILE-ONLINE                     UPDATE          N/A            

     COMPILE-BATCH                      UPDATE          N/A            

     COMPILE-SYNC                       UPDATE          N/A            

     COPY-PROGRAM-ACROSS-SYSTEM         UPDATE          CONTROL        

     COPY-MEMBER-ACROSS-USER            ADMIN           N/A            

     CREATE-DATAVIEW                    DATAVIEW-ADMIN  N/A            

     CREATE-EDIT-SYSTEM                 ADMIN           N/A            

     CREATE-EDIT-USER                   ADMIN           N/A            

     CREATE-MEMBER-ACROSS-USER          ADMIN           N/A            

     CREATE-MODULE                      CONTROL         N/A            

     CREATE-PACKAGE                     CONTROL         N/A            

     CREATE-PLAN                        CONTROL         N/A            

     CREATE-PROGRAM                     CONTROL         N/A            

     CREATE-PANEL                       CONTROL         N/A            

     CREATE-REPORT                      CONTROL         N/A            

     CREATE-DOCUMENT                    CONTROL         N/A            

For example, in this environment, a user only needs UPDATE access for a system to compile one of the programs there, but they need CONTROL access in order to create the program. However, to create a Dataview, the user must be identified with the DVW Administrator Privilege, because dataviews are not related to specific systems.
