Granting a user *SPLCTL does for spooled files what *ALLOBJ does for 
object authority.  You won't be able to restrict their access to any 
spooled file on any output queue. However, you can accomplish the access 
control you're looking for. 

Try setting Authority to check to *DTAAUT and display any file to *NO. 
Then use object authority (perhaps at the group level) to the output 
queue.  *EXCLUDE is no access, *USE allows the user to see and work with 
thier own files, and *CHANGE allows the user to manage all the files on 
the queue. 

Setting the OPRCTL parameter to *YES allows a user with *JOBCTL special 
authority to manage the queue even if they don't have authority to 
display/copy/send the files.  Spooled file security on the i-Series is 
very flexible.  Try the settings above and experiment.  Good luck.

[Security400] Secure OUTQ by user/group

Hello All,

I'm looking for a way to secure spool files in an OUTQ.  I have somewhat
acheived this by setting Auth to chk = *OWNER, oper ctrld = *NO, and 
any file = *OWNER on the OUTQ and then giving *SPLCTL spec auth to the 
who need to have access to it.  However, I need to be able to setup 
OUTQs with different permissions for each.  I don't want all users with
*SPLCTL to be able to see ALL secured spool files.  I would like to be 
to say group A can access OUTQ1, group B can access OUTQ2, and so on.  Any
