Hi Jon,

I have a utility available in iSeries to start/stop the IWS
Servers/services (which I am using Shell commands to do from the RPGLE
program). Most of the users will be having access to this utility.

Now to execute the shell commands the users should have either ALLOBJ and
IOSYSCFG authority which we are not providing this authority to all the
users or the user should have a minimum operator level access for the IWS
servers.

I am coming up with a new iSeries option in the utility to grant operator
level access, which I am thinking about how I can achieve this in the RPGLE
program.

Regards,
Suren

If you could explain a little about what you are hoping to do it would
help.

It is not normal to have a regular User Id on the system to use a web
service. Maybe a Validation List entry and there's pre-written software out
there to maintain those.

Hi Jon,

Thanks for sharing the link.

I read the document, It says only granting access through HTTP Admin page
and did not mention anything about granting access using Shell command or
any other options other than HTTP Admin page.

Suren

The available commands are listed in the documentation (

- don't know if that will give you what you need. I think one or two
additional ones may have been added - sadly IBM hasn't updated the
manual
since 2018! I can find a page that describes getConfigurationFile.sh
which
was added in 2019 but can't find a consolidated list of the new stuff.

Hi All,

Could you please let me know whether we have any shell command or any
other
option available to provide operator level access to users without
using
HTTP Admin page?

Any help will be appreciated.
