Re: User Group Security Maintenance - SSALOG00 (Genyphyr Novak) --__--__-- Message: 1 From: "Genyphyr Novak" <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: <email@example.com> Subject: Re: User Group Security Maintenance Date: Mon, 18 Feb 2002 18:23:34 +0100 Organization: SSA Global Technologies Reply-To: firstname.lastname@example.org Hello, This topic of adding more programs to Group Security is not covered in the DOC menu items such as SSALOG00, because it requires modifications to BPCS to make a program use group security if it was not already shipped that way to start with. This feature (Group Security SYS603) was not available in older BPCS releases, such as BPCS CD. It was first introduced in BPCS with the product 'LMS' and became a popular enhancement request for other BPCS programs after it was first developed. There is a FAQ entry on OGS which covers how to do this in some detail, or you can get the programming details from calling Support Center, who can help you find the FAQ I am referring to, or you can determine this for yourself via analyzing the differences between a program which is already in the Group Security and those which are not. Then, find out which priming data files need to be updated by analyzing which files the display programs for Group Security looks at to find and list the program options. To add a new program to the BPCS Group Security options requires both programming and priming data database changes in BPCS. The programs currently featured in Group Security were those identified by various customers at various times in the life of BPCS as being something they wanted to have group security on (ie, securing the program options available to a given user by use of a 'group' which had those set of authorities set up already). Enhancements were made over time to add new programs to Group Security, usually in new BPCS releases. You can call the Support Center and make an 'E' BMR request for future enhancement to get another program added to the Group Security, or find out if a newer release of BPCS happens to have this already activated for the program you are interested in. The fastest way to get this for yourself at your current release would be to have this programmed. SSA GT has services personnel available who can do this programming for you, or you can do this yourself if you have programming skills available. It is not overly complicated, but does require careful planning when updating the priming data files.

You can access this from a raw green screen with a WRKMBRPDM command, on the BPCSO/BPCSDOC file, for *ALL members to see the list of available texts, including SSALOG00 which is the BPCS 'Logic Guide' - a system administrator/programmer level document, not required by average BPCS users. The DOC menu in Mixed Mode BPCS just gives a user interface to this multi-membered file, and allows security to be added so that not everyone has the right to view/change them. Since it is possible to edit the text from inside PDM, make sure that this file is locked down in your C/S environment, and I suggest making a copy of the original file into a library where no one in the SSA group has authority to it, so that you can use this as a backup to restore any members that become 'corrupted' by 'accident'. Via object security on the AS/400 and with the way BPCS installs by default (everything owned by SSA user, with BPCS users getting SSA group authority), any BPCS user with command line access has all rights to modify this file. The DOC menu therefore only truly secures these members if the end-user has no command line access in or out of BPCS. The RUNDOC information for the BPCS application programs has been turned into .hlp files on the PC client (press F1 from the GUI application), and is therefore available as helptext on the client, so you don't really need all the members in this file from Green Screen if you are Full C/S. But the SSALOG00 was not transformed this way, and must be viewed in the green screen SEU interface. At V8, the SSALOG00 was made available as a Word document on OGS Online, so that all V8 BPCS users (including Unix clients) could access this more easily.. Some of the information definitely doesn't apply to Unix (setting up new environments is strictly AS/400-centric in SSALOG00) but other information on ODW/ADK programming standards and naming conventions in BPCS will help anyone wanting to modify BPCS or understand the priming data files better etc..
