Security on the i5 functions the same regardless of whether or not one uses the 36 environment.
What is different is the library list. Here we have the special (36) environment set as a system value. But the library list, even if the environment is set via the user profile, should have two unique libraries that a non-36 environment normally would not have:
It will probably, also, have QS36F, which is where the i5 wants to put data files when running in the environment. You can determine this both by looking at the library list and by running this while in the 36 environment:
// * '?FLIB?'
?FLIB? is a s/36 variable that stands for File Library.

How does security function for users in the S/36 environment?
I'm working on a box running a S/36 app (GMI), and noticed that a user without the S/36 fails to sign on when they don't have authority to the library containing their initial program (which is good), but when that same user profile is set to Special Environment = *S36, they sign on with no problem.
I haven't worked with S/36 stuff, since, well I was on the S/36, so any input would be helpful. I did some searches of the available IBM documentation i could find without turning up anything.
