This is exactly what I was looking for.  Hope it also works for V5R4 .... I see that it was available for 6.1 but in checking the IBM Knowledge Center, it looks like it was not a part of V5R4.  Perhaps I need to just drop that as a requirement for my purposes.

Thank you!

Hello Rich,

I suggest you take a look at the Retrieve Users Authorized to an  Object (QSYRTVUA) API:

You can find an example using the API here:

Subject: Retrieving IFS Security Info

    I am looking for a way to programatically retrieve security details about
    any object in the IFS.  I've been trying to track down an API that mimics
    the DSPAUT command, but no luck so far.  I hate the idea of printing
    DSPAUT to a file and reading back the file, but at this point that seems
    like my only option.  I must be missing something.
