Aaron, Technically, a developer doesn't need any special authorities. One exception I've run into (while debugging from WDSC ??) was the need for *SERVICE. You might set up a test developer profile and see what you can do. Certainly you don't want to give them *ALLOBJ or *SPLCTL.

Known Requirement #1 At times there will be projects where an NDA is signed and work for that project will be done in a particular library (possibly contain some of the customers code that we are interfacing with). Without going into the details of a particular NDA I am dealing with, one of my requirements will be to lock down this library so only the programmer that is working on it has access to it. This would then also include only allowing that programmer to view their spool files (compile results). Known Requirement #2 For when I have occasional consultants on the machine I would only want them to be able to operate in the library I gave them access to and not other libraries or spool files. Right now I am at security level 40 which from what I read seems to be the right fit (level 50 looks to be over the top for my needs). My basic needs are to allow one group of people access to most all libraries except a few, and the opposite of that, allow access to a single library/splf's and nothing else. From what I understand I do not want to give out *ALLOBJ authority because then people can just grant authority to themselves if they don't have authority to something. I don't want to hand out *IOSYSCFG even though that would be handy for programmers when they need to do stuff with the HTTP *ADMIN server. I am basically looking for a solid combination of authorities that a typical programmer profile should have. The aforementioned link gives a lot of good info, and I am learning a lot, but I have yet to find a "best practices" or tutorial type approach to implementing user profile security for OS/400 objects/commands. Are there any that someone could suggest?
