Testing here seems to show that the 'average user' does indeed have access
to the list of userids & descriptions given by select * from
table(qsys2.users()) i

The usual hack for that would be to just look for their message queues:

select objname, objtext
from table(qsys2.object_statistics(
'QUSRSYS', '*MSGQ')) x

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.

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

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
