In version 6.1 SSA made a half hearted attempt to allow limiting access 
based on the Users Group ID assigned in SYS600.

If you bring up SYS603D, then use option 11=Options against a particular 
group you will see a list of programs with the Create/Update/Delete etc. 
options under them. The access of the group to each option can be 
controlled by setting the authority to 1 or 0.

Once set any member of that group will only see the options they have 
access to, and other options will not work in that program.

The BIG drawback is - only a selected few programs in BPCS have this 
feature enabled.

If you have access to the AS/SET source, and the programming skills to 
attempt it, you can modify other programs to use this feature by replacing 
the call to SYS006B & SYS007B with calls to SYS006B2 and SYS007B2 using 
additional parameters. (Use a program that is currently enabled as an 

You will then need to use a data entry utility to add records to the ZOP 
table for your updated program. look at existing entries for the format 
and data needed - it includes the message ID from SSAZ03 for each 
action/function. Be aware that the option number in ZOP should be from 1 - 
99 for an action and 101 to 124 for a Function Key.

[BPCS-L] BPCS - Program Security

I am new to BPCS and I'm not sure how the package works. I know that my
company doesn't have source for most of the package or probably all. I
have noticed that most of the inquiry screens uses, 5 to display, 2 to
revise, etc...


My question is without the source is there a way to limit users to
display only and not allow them to revise records. The program I would
like to secure is the Item master (INV100).


Thanks for any responses.
