Problem:

I am trying to secure GROUPs. I have this in my RHDCSRTT assembly:-

#SECRTT TYPE=ENTRY,RESTYPE=GROU,SECBY=INT

Despite this, there is seemingly no security being applied to GROUP defintions. Any user can DISPLAY and update any group.

Why is this the case?

 
Environment:

CA-IDMS, any release, any operating system.

Cause:

The most likely cause of this problem is that RESTYPE=SYSA is not secured.

In order for any of RESTYPEs USER, GROU, UPRF to be secured, RESTYPE SYSA must also be secured.

Resolution:

Add the following line to your RHDCSRTT input and re-assemble it:-

#SECRTT TYPE=ENTRY,RESTYPE=SYSA,SECBY=INT
