there is an other way to show just the userid and text description.
I read that it will not go away and will not be changed.

select * from table(qsys2.users()) i

I prefer this for the "average" user that may only need the user and text.
it does not show all the user profile details like qsys2.user_info

Thanks Kevin
I have to specify the library name in my SQL, that’s all


SELECT AUTHORIZATION_NAME, TEXT_DESCRIPTION FROM qsys2.user_info

Excellent

Thanks

Just a view in qsys2. I don't remember having to do anything special to have it created. I started changing some of my jobs that did DSPUSRPRF to *OUTFILE a while back.

Hi Kevin
Thanks for the reply
That doesn’t work
What is user_info?

SELECT AUTHORIZATION_NAME, TEXT_DESCRIPTION FROM user_info

That isn't what you are looking for?

Subject: Is there a way to extract some information from user profiles via SQL

Hi everyone
Before I forget, we are on V7r3

We have an audit trail file that contains amongst other things, the user profile that applied the change The user profile id has no bearing on the person whos user profile it is However, the text of the user profile DOES contain the persons name Is there a way via SQl to extract that text data?
I have looked here

https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/wikis/home?lang=en#!/wiki/IBM%20i%20Technology%20Updates/page/DB2%20for%20i%20-%20Services

But couldn't really find anything
I know that there is a command - RTVUSRPRF that can be used in a CL program, but I am hoping that there is something out there within SQL As always, all replies gratefully accepted
