I suggest you take a look at the Retrieve Users Authorized to an

This is exactly what I was looking for. Hope it also works for V5R4

Knowledge Center, it looks like it was not a part of V5R4. <<SNIP>>


FWiW, at the _bottom_ of every page that documents an API, since some very long time ago, a notation should exist to identify when that API was introduced. The 6.1 doc for the aforementioned API, for example, should have included the following text: "API introduced: V2R2"

While that tidbit is not helpful to know when any particular portion of information may be available from an API [e.g. a new format or new fields that came with a newer release], at least an inference that there should exist specific doc for that API is intuitively obvious.

Although with the recent transition to the KnowledgeCenter from the InfoCenter, IBM has ¿apparently abandoned? any visibility to [at least] the documentation at both v5r3 and v5r4; Or so I have inferred from my inability to access docs from bookmarked references and inability to "add product" of those releases of the OS :-( While I have seen some other anecdotal references to the new KC and maybe only allusions to loss of the IC on these lists, I am actually surprised there has not been a topic dedicated to that topic here on midrange-l, like there were when IC came along to replace [the ¿Books? of the "online library" or whatever was the moniker for] the prior web-based docs interface. Why IBM leaves the v5r1 and v5r2 ICs but seems to have obliterated those of v5r3 and v5r4, is nonsensical IMO; though I am biased, because my only access to the OS is via a v5r3 system.
