Dear Vincent, here's our response to your second issue: Security breach concerns raised by giving command line access to a BPCS user "By Invitation Only" software grants user access to OS/400 commands while closing the door on headaches associated with command line access. A specific user can be granted authority to execute selected OS/400 commands without giving that user command line authority. Here's how a security officer would set it up for a given BPCS user ... let's call her Michelle: Step A - Turn off command line access for Michelle at the OS/400 user security level. Step B - Navigate "By Invitation Only" menus to the 'Work with Individual Commands' option. Step C - The security officer can then select which specific OS/400 commands should be authorized for access by Michelle. Note: any subset of the 1,800+ iSeries commands can be selected. Even custom commands developed for Michelle's job function can be selected using this approach. Step D - Visit Michelle and tell here she's set to go. She can now launch her authorized OS/400 commands from By Invitation Only's 'User Commands' menu. A parallel "By Invitation Only" process is available to grant user authority to execute selected BPCS programs. "By Invitation Only" software replaces BPCS' clunky user profile maintenance process. It provides a due diligence process that enables prompt and comprehensive responses to audit challenges. That's a huge improvement relative to the ' SECURITY BY OBSCURITY ' approach packaged with versions 4.x - 8.x of vanilla BPCS. http://www.unbeatenpathintl.com/BIOnly-start/source/1.html Here's some other clever/affordable "Bells & Whistles" for BPCS software products: http://www.unbeatenpathintl.com/bells/source/1.html Warm regards and peace to you, Milt Habeck Unbeaten Path International Toll free North America: (888) 874-8008 International voice: (262) 681-3151 mhabeck@xxxxxxxxxx www.unbeatenpathintl.com +++++++ +++++++ +++++++ +++++++ +++++++ +++++++ From: Vincent Dsouza To: bpcs-l@xxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Wednesday, April 28, 2004 12:10 AM Subject: Print reports > 132 chr Hi, We are running BPCS ver 6.02 on 820 machine, The max report width setup in 'system control data area' (SYS041D) is 132 chrs We have developed many in-house queries where the report width exceeds 132 columns. All queries are run from CL programs. When these queries are run from the menu, the report width setup in SYS041D overrides the report width of these queries and the output gets truncated to 132 character. When the CL(query) program is executed from command line the report width in SYS041D is ignored and we are able to produce reports greater than 132 columns. By giving the user access to command line we give rise to an security breach, by granting the user rights to run any program from command line like (ACR100D1, INV100 et etc). How can we print reports > 132 chrs from the menu without having to compromise on the width of these reports and access to command line. Does anyone have a solution to this problem ?.
