Command Line Access via BPCS is not something I would want to give to
Users. When you have command line access through BPCS you are executing at
the SSA group level; the adopted authority. On our machine that is almost
as powerful as QSECOFR. The AS/400 is such a friendly machine that a user
can prompt to their hearts desire and locate all sorts of interesting
commands such as DLTF, PWRDWNSYS, CHGSYSVAL .... 

I personally would prefer to create new menu options within BPCS for the
user to perform the specific functions they feel are neccessary from the
command line. Another advantage of creating the specific options is that in
additiona to controlling what commands they have access to you can also
restrict the parameters within the command. We have created unique commands
for our help desk operators to reactivate user profiles, reset passwords
and even change BPCS workstation options such as default printers.
