Thanks Ed, and everyone else who responded. It looks like the user adopts AMAPICS authority from the initial menu. The AMAPICS profile has *ALLOBJ, *SECADM, *SERVICE among others, and user class QSECOFR. The initial menu involved here is one given to most users but most users do not have command line access. My concern is with programmers calling the menu to gain AMAPICS authority. This situation probably goes back many years and I may be wasting my time on this, but it just seems to easy to gain SECADM authority by virtue of being in a menu. I will turn on *PGMADP on Monday and see what turns up. Bryan Burns Echo, Inc.

The two of the many possible places the adopted authority is coming from are the menu, if it is a TYPE(*PGM) menu, or from the users initial program. One way to determine where the adopted authority is coming from is to turn on *PGMADP auditing and then look at the AP audit record. This audit record will be written to the QAUDJRN each time adopted authority is used. It will include the name and library of the program using the adopted authority. It will also include the name of the owning user profile that the program is adopting.
