Can the USER-COMMENTS field on the CA View Sysout Selection list screen be restricted so after it has been populated by the CA View Administrators, it cannot be changed or modified by the users?
There is a CA View security function called CPLFCHG associated to the REPT resource, that your external security Administrator can use to perform the restriction...
- With FEATURE=1 installed, the following example shows the security call associated to updating the USER COMMENTS field:
+FUNC=CPLFCHG ACCESS=WRITE CLASS=CHA1VIEW ENTITY=VIEW.REPT.sysoutid
Considering this, you should be able to allow & restrict updating of the USER COMMENTS field using the following resource rule examples:
- Assign Admins WRITE access via:
FUNC=CPLFCHG ACCESS=WRITE CLASS=CHA1VIEW ENTITY=VIEW.REPT.*
- Assign Users READ access via:
FUNC=CPLFCHG ACCESS=READ CLASS=CHA1VIEW ENTITY=VIEW.REPT.*
