While trying to maintain a userid in TPXADMIN, I cannot save and get this message:


CA TPX for z/OS

When you define a master or user administrator, you must specify at least one group in the list of groups that the user can administer.  An administrator may only administer their defined groups or the users belonging to those groups.


1. In order to access a user in TPXADMIN, a TPX administrator's userid must be set up with the appropriate administration access:

Set up TPXADMIN - User Maintenance - 6 Maintain Administrator Capabilities panel as follows: 

  • List all GROUPS this user is allowed to access as a TPX administrator 
    (sample from TEN0169)                                             
      - TPX User Administrator:         Y                               
      - TPX Master Administrator:       N                               
      - TPX Master Administrator:       N                                   
      - TPX System Administrator:       N                                   
      - TPX Operator Administrator:     N                                   
      -   Groups this User Administrator can modify:                        
      -   xxxxxxxx                                                          
      --  xxxxxxxx                                                          

2. Verify the group of the user being administered.  You can see the user's group listed within their User Options:

In order to determine the GROUP assigned to multiple userids, you can create batch reports that will provide this information.  Examples are provided in the sample library (CB0VSRC).  See member $BATADMN for an index of examples provided. 

The TPX Batch reporting Guide provides additional information on creating custom batch reports and processes.

Additional Information:

Unless your site has a specific need for more than one group, it may be best to leave TPXGROUP as the only defined group.
