RE: Field level security



fixed

Sounds like a job for RUNSQLSTM wrapped in a program that requires the
user to identify themselves.

Thanks for all your suggestions. This gets even weirder. Now the client
is saying she wants one query. If foreman A runs it, she only wants to
him see the employees assigned to him. If foreman B runs it, the display
should be limited to his crew.

I have figured out how to do it, but this breadbox keeps getting bigger.

DB2 for the i includes column level security also at v5r3+

Neither DB2 for i or DB2 LUW allow for per-column restriction; the
per-column restriction is limited to UPDATEs.

Paul,

As far as I know, only DB2 for Linux/Unix/Windows supports
column-level security.

For DB2 for IBM i, I think you have to create a view with just the
columns you want.

Hope this helps.

List,
Is there any way through standard OS means to obtain field level
security?
For example, if I give Jane Doe the ability to create a query over
the employee master file, is there a way to let her see everything
except
the
salary field?

This is a V5R4 system. Does V6 have this feature?
