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

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.

        I agree with the other people that responded and said that it sound
        the user can do this because they are using adopted authority. 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
        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
        the name and library of the program using the adopted authority. It
        also include the name of the owning user profile that the program is
