Question:

I want to use VMSPOOL SPOOLIST to list spool files for another user.  What authorization do I need?

 

Answer:  

The authorization to browse or view a spool file is VIEW so you will need VIEW authorization.

 

Additional Information:

 

If you wanted to let PENELOPE browse any of PETER's spool files, you could put this record in the VMSPOOL CONFIG file:

GRANT VIEW PETER TO PENELOPE

 

 

 

The GRANT record is discussed in more detail in the VM:Spool System Administrator's Guide.
