The client wants to have several reports secured, such that each entity can only see their portion of the report.
To define external security, for a CA View database and environment, using RACF, please use the following procedure:
. Define new RACF group ABCDEF in the RACF tree, to be used as an ownership placeholder.
. Modify corresponding existing groups, to point to ABCDEF owning group.
. Define new RACF group ABCADMIN, to be used to grant admin rights to the new CHA1VIEW profiles.
. Connect several users.
. Define new class CHA1VIEW to the RACF Dynamic CDT (Class Descriptor Table), for the corresponding LPARs.
. Define CHA1VIEW profiles, to protect the View resources and functions.
. Activate the new CHA1VIEW Class
. . Note: This should be run last, right before external security is enabled.
