What is the difference between the CommandExecute policy in EEM versus the usage of AutoSysCommandISponsorFilters.txt


Release: WAAGTA99000-11.4-Workload Automation-Agent AE-MSP


The difference between the CommandExecute policy versus AutoSysCommandISponsorFilters.txt is that any settings in the AutoSysCommandISponsorFilters.txt file are global and apply to everyone.

When using the CommandExecute policy you can restrict commands and also certain users.

For example if you want to allow user 'user1' to execute 'autoflags -a' command and also 'autorep -J'  but no other commands.
This can be done by specifying following resource in the CommandExecute policy.

server/ACE/autoflags -a
server/ACE/autorep -J [^;]+$

Select 'Execute' as action'.
Turn on the flag 'Treat resource names as regular expressions'.

If you specify

server/ACE/autorep [^;]+$

then all options of autorep are allowed.
