Nope - that's not a problem. They are STILL fantastic to work with.
Robot has a very tight security setup. There is only one problem that I
wish was resolved, and that is that you can't use secondary groups in
their security scenario. This is acknowledged, and may be taken care of
with release 10.

I'm just wondering what settings others have used in the real world. I
have a plan...which is supposed to be put into effect today. But I am a
believer in the "multitude of counsel".

Thanks for the response... :-)

Hate to hear that (Help Systems answer) because I have always found them
to be fantastic to work with. Did they acknowledge this issue or say it
wasn't one, etc. ?

And I guess I don't really understand why programmers and help desk
folks would be using Robot Schedule? I too have used Robot Schedule
going back to the S/38 days at several different companies and we always
tightly controlled access to Robot Schedule (?).

We have been using Help Systems Robot Schedule for many years. But,
along came SOX and interrupted our tranquil life. Now I need to set up
Robot so that programmers and help desk personnel don't have access to
the jobs, and yet, can get their jobs done.

Primarily, this is because the profile being used by a job may have
(probably has) more authority than the person doing maintenance to the
job. That means that a person could add a command to the job to do
something nefarious - like deleting all the libraries - or something
like that.

I am wondering if anyone else has already gone through this exercise and
can give some guidelines that they ended up following. I have called
Help Systems, and they don't have anything more than their manual, as
far a instructions or methods go.

Thank you,
