 ************************** BOTTOM OF DATA *************************

Batch Administration :


To provide a user with Administrative Authority for User-Management, Master Administration, System Management and Operator Management use the following statements:

//SYSIN     DD

 UPDATE USER (userid (UIDXCADM({Y|N}))) <<< User

 UPDATE USER (userid (UIDXCMST({Y|N})))  <<< Master 

 UPDATE USER (userid (UIDXCSYS({Y|N}))) <<< System

 UPDATE USER (userid (UIDXCOPR({Y|N}))) <<< Operations


The User Administrator Authority is represented by field UIDXCADM, Master Administrator Authority is represented by field UIDXCMST, System Administrator Authority is represented by field UIDXCSYS and Operator Administrator Authority is represented by field UIDXCOPR.

You can reference more than one Authority in an UPDATE-Statement. This statement provides User SMITH User Update Authority but denies Master Authority:

//SYSIN     DD



To maintain the list of groups under the title "Groups this User Administrator can modify" use these two statements:

To add the group group-name to the user userid:

//SYSIN     DD

  ADD  USERMAGN  (userid group-name)


If several groups need to be added to a user, use multiple statements, multiple groups cannot be added to a user in one USERMAGN-Statement, instead,  group several USERMAGN-Statements in one SYSIN:

//SYSIN     DD

  ADD  USERMAGN  (userid group-name_1)

  ADD  USERMAGN  (userid group-name_2)

  ADD  USERMAGN  (userid group-name_3)



To  remove a group from a user’s responsibility use DELETE:


//SYSIN     DD

  DELETE  USERMAGN (userid group-name)
