The user is not listed individually, there are no private
authorities to these programs. The program state is
*USER. The weird thing is that I can debug the program
by adding it to debug with F14 - option 1, but I can't
specify the program directly. Because of this, I can debug
the program (change variables, etc.). I believe that when
my group profile is set to the owner of a program I should
be able to debug the program.

I can debug a service program with identical authority.
It looks like the validation of a service program happens
in a different program. If I trace the job it looks like a
service program is essentially added to debug after
starting debug. Adding a program or service program
works as I would expect and I think that is why I can
debug service programs but not programs.

The program sending the error is QTECADPG for a
program. It sends CPF1910. If I am not authorized to
a service program QLIROHDL sends CPF9802.

I do have a clue from my testing. Debug also appears
to do some profile checking at run time.  I have not
seen this documented. The security reference says
that you need authority to the following:

Source file 4 *USE *EXECUTE
Any include files 4 *USE *EXECUTE
Source debug program *USE *EXECUTE
Unmonitored message program *USE *EXECUTE

Here is something that I think is strange. I can be
running a job with an effective user that should
allow me to debug a program. I can try debug and
it doesn't work (without the F14 workaround). I can
then change the profile while the job is running to
set the group from *NONE to the group profile that
owns the object. Then debug works.

Is the user trying to debug the program listed individually in the
dspobjaut?  If so that will override the group.

What is the value you have in DSPPGM for
Program state  . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . :   *USER or *SYSTEM?
If it
is *SYSTEM you'll need *SERVICE authority.
