With the caveat that (at least at some point) IBM said not to use this feature for security purposes. Allegedly the PC checks the user's access and caches it in the registry. I guess it's possible to hack the values to bypass the prohibition, though I've never bothered to try (or even look for the values). I do know that when we've granted users access to things, they had to sign out of Windows and back in for it to allow them.

There are capabilities within System i Navigator (formerly known as
Operations Navigator) to block certain users from certain parts of it.
Fire it up. Right click on the system and select Application
Administration. For each option there are two columns. One is "Default
Access". This means "do you want the general public to be able to use
this option?". The other is "All object access". Do NOT freak out.
does not give you all object access to that option. This asks you "do
want people who have all *ALLOBJ to be able to use this option?". You
also customize each option.
