Charles, are you using iSeries Navigator?  If so, you may find the GUI more
to your liking for managing user profiles and authority lists.

Using authorization lists along with primary group and supplemental group
profiles is exactly what I intend to do.

It's just I have 8,500 objects and 387 user profiles.

I'd like an easier to use method of documenting and/or managing the design;
which authorization lists control which objects, which groups are on which
lists, and which users are in which groups.
