Joking aside, perhaps the intended question was about /restoring/ the
Private Authorities when Save Security Data [or SAVSYS] had been used.
In that case the serious reply is to use Restore Authorities (RSTAUT)
after Restore User Profiles (RSTUSRPRF). That is part of a standard
_i Saving security data i_
"This information describes the commands that save user profiles,
private authorities, authorization lists, and authority holders.
Use the SAVSYS command or the Save Security Data (SAVSECDTA) command to
save the following security data:
* User profiles
* Private authorities
_Saving private authorities_
You can save private authorities for objects using either of the
* Use the SAVSYS or SAVESECDTA command. When you restore the data,
specify the Restore User Profiles (RSTUSRPRF) and Restore Authority
(RSTAUT) commands to restore the private authorities along with the
data. This method is recommended for recovering an entire system.
* Use any of the SAVxx or SAVRSTxx commands with the PVTAUT(*YES)
parameter to save private authorities for objects. When you restore the
objects, specify PVTAUT(*YES) on the RSTxx command to restore the
private authorities for those objects. Although saving private
authorities increases the amount of time it takes to save the objects,
it simplifies the recovery of the objects. Using the PVTAUT(*YES)
parameter is recommended for restoring specific objects, but it is not
recommended for recovering the entire system or a large-scale recovery
of user data.
the default is no.
Presumably that alludes to a default of *NO for the Private
Authorities parameter for the SAVLIB, RSTLIB, [SAVOBJ, and RSTOBJ]
commands and save API(s).?
The recommendation against using PVTAUT for saving\restoring private
authorities is warned in the above snippet of doc, but I see no explicit
statement of the conspicuous issue for Authorization List (*AUTL) objects.
