I don't think sql GRANT command is valid against sql INDEX objects. It
doesn't make sense in SQL as you can never reference an index directly.
Only query optimizer is support to use it for alternate access plan
implementation and/or source of real time statistics.

If you're on the other hand using an sql INDEX as a regular keyed LF, I
guess only recourse you have is the GRTOBJAUT command as you've already

If you want to stick with RUNSQLSTM compatible statements, you can call
QCMDEXC as a stored procedure and embed the GRTOBJAUT command string in it.
It should work fine.

Subject: SQL index authority

I have replaced a couple LFs with SQL indexes. However, I can't seem to
figure out how to grant authority to the indexes as I would using
GRTOBJAUT. I know how to do it with tables and views using the GRANT
stmt, but not indexes. I want the equivalent of GRTOBJAUT OBJ(INDEXA)
OBJTYPE(*FILE) USER(*PUBLIC) AUT(*CHANGE). Or am I looking at this in the
wrong way? Thanks.
