Issue:
We have 5 RACF groups. (eg. Prof1 - Prof5).
The users are dynamic in TPX and we have defined Prof1-Prof5 in TPX.

Users get profile from RACF. We want all users (Prof1-Prof5) to use Prof1 in TPX. Is it possible to solve this by using Security Alias parameter in profile definition?
Resolution:
Profile Table detail panel has the flexibility to use an Alias. (Panelid - TEN0180)

Security Alias - Specifies the name by which this profile is identified to the security system when the security system is determining the user's profiles. For RACF and SAF "user-level security", this field is matched to the group name or names assigned to the user.

For RACF, SAF, ACF2, and Top Secret "profile-level security", this field is matched against the resource name within the resource class used to authorize access to TPX profiles. If you leave this field blank, the profile name is used.
