Resolution

Regarding wanting to prohibit users to use commands DEMAND and RUN, but only give the users DEMANDH and RUNH.
A way to do this is to define a new resource within member SASSTRAN in the CAL2SRC library.
 
By default, you should have the following:
 
DEMAND,SPO0,10,ESNAME=L2QPDMND
DEMANDH,SPO0,10,ESNAME=L2QPDMND
and
RUN,SPO0,10,ESNAME=L2QPRUN
RUNH,SPO0,10,ESNAME=L2QPRUN
 
-
Since the DEMAND/H and RUN/H commands uses the same resource, disabling access to one will disable both.
You will have to either define a different resource name for those commands and have your Security Administrator restrict the new resource created for DEMAND in RACF.
 
For example:
 
DEMAND,SPO0,10,ESNAME=L2QPDMND
DEMANDH,SPO0,10,ESNAME=L2QPDMNH
 
RUN,SPO0,10,ESNAME=L2QPRUN
RUNH,SPO0,10,ESNAME=L2QPRUNH
 
-
After you modify the SASSTRAN module, you will have to reassemble and link it for the changes to take affect.
