The owner of the RPGLE program is SSA, and the owner of the SQLPKG that gets created in QGPL is also SSA.

I don't see the stored procedure as an object in QGPL, unless you mean the SQLPKG.
When I look at the stored procedure using Navigator, it's owned by SSA and *PUBLIC has *USE.

Subject: [EXTERNAL] Object authority issues

I REALLY hesitate to open up this issue, but I clearly don't understand something or am missing something obvious.

I have a stored procedure defined in QGPL which calls an SQLRPGLE program in another library, specified in the procedure.
The program is owned by a specific user (SSA) and is defined as: User profile *OWNER and Use Adopted Authority as *YES.

A user, whose Group Profile is SSA, calls a PC application program, which calls the stored procedure but receives an SQL0551 error

Message Text: Not authorized to object &1 in &2 type *&3.
Cause Text: An operation was attempted on object &1 in &2 type *&3. This operation cannot be performed without the required authority.
Recovery Text: Obtain the required authority from either the security officer, the object owner, or a user that is authorized to the QIBM_DB_SECADM function. If you are not authorized to a logical file, obtain the authority to the based-on files of the logical file. Try the operation again.

The program has *PUBLIC as *USE, *GROUP SSA has *ALL for object authorities.

My apparently limited grasp of authority tells me that the user has *USE authority to the program object, and by that authority should then adopt the authority of the owner, which then allows authority to use the files and data the object uses.

Why doesn't the user, who is part of the Group Profile that owns the object, and has *USE authority have authority to use the program?
Further, I've tried changing the object authority on the program *USER to *ALL, changed the owner of the object to the actual user itself, all to no avail.

The only thing that works is giving the calling user All Object authority, and I obviously can't do that.

Using Carol Woodbury's book (i5/OS Security) and Authority Search Progression chart, authority short of All Object authority, is available as it is setup, no?
