My problem is that the some devs pester me absolutely every time they see
those messages. They're adamant that the obvious error in their code isn't
to blame for their binding failure, it's an IBMi problem that I have to fix.

"Any reason not to grant devs *USE?"

Yes - they don't need it!

These are just warning messages and actually occur during the bind step of
any compile.

Basically, all of these objects appear in the system binding directories
so when the binder is trying to resolve any unsatisfied references (i.e for
one of your own subprocedures) it will include these objects in the search
- but your code does not have the necessary authority and so the message


It is only a warning message! If the compile fails it has nothing to do
with these message - the real reason (probably a misnamed procedure or one
missing from your binding directory) will appear later in the log. Just
ignore these messages - do NOT try to "Fix" them. That's a bad idea.
