RE: IFS File Authority



fixed

If you have something generating a new file with a temp job number on it, you probably want to look at the process generating the file, not the IFS itself.

A file copy will never change or append any data to a file name.

This sounds like a code thing to me.

What are the authorities to the IFS directory itself?

Adding/removing files requires authority to the container...not the file.

We have a program that creates an xml file on the IFS using CGIDEV2. When
USERA runs the program it creates the file on the IFS with USERA as the
owner having *RWX authority and *PUBLIC has *RWX authority. When USERB
runs
the program to create the same file on the IFS, it doesn't replace the
existing file but creates a new file with TEMP(jobnumber) appended to the
end. When I view the authority on the temp file, USERB is the owner
having
*RWX authority and *PUBIC has *RWX authority. What authority is missing
that doesn't allow USERB to replace the file created by USERA?
