Issue/Introduction

DB2 Role functionality in CA Top Secret for DB2.

How do you reproduce the DB2 Role functionality with CA Top Secret?

Environment

Release:
Component: TSSMVS

Resolution

Securing DB2 with CA Top Secret is different than how roles are handled in DB2 native security.

In DB2 native security, create a role and then grant accesses to the role.

The equivalent method in TSS DB2 is to use PROFILEs instead of ROLEs.

PERMIT a group of DB2 resources to a PROFILE and then give the PROFILE to the appropriate users.
