Running CA Common Services r14.1 with CAIRIM PTF RO69205 installed, the CAS9SAFC load module (located in cai.CAW0LINK) and related source (located in cai.CAW0SAMP) no longer contain the default resource classes in the translation table. As a result you may have some questions like:

  1. Do these classes exist elsewhere or have they been removed all together?
  2. How do I make changes to the previously defined default tables or how to go about defining new custom tables?



In previous releases, after CCS was installed, if you were using CAISSF for IBM RACF and you needed to make changes to resource classes used by CA products, you were required to install a user modification (ie. CAS9MOD). This modification updated class tables that were embedded within CAS9RACL and CAS9SAFC.

Beginning with release 14.1 we introduce control statements in the CAIRIM initialization routine to replace that USERMOD. Now after the installation, you identify IBM RACF class table values in your existing user modification and code the necessary parameters using CAIRIM control statements. Default class table values are still defined so you only need to modify or add class tables if this is something you did previously. The new control statements are defined in a standard FB 80-byte file and are identified to the CAS9 procedure by a new CAIRACF DD statement. The syntax of this new control statement is as follows:

RACFCLASS CA-solution classname,translated classname, FASTAUTH=NO|YES,CICS=NO|YES

Refer to the CA Common Services r14.1 documentation for related information.

Here is an example of what the Resource Translation Table looked like in the CAS9SAFC source member previously delivered. Here you can see the various class table values. One common change that customers made was to change the resource check from a FASTAUTH check. A FASTAUTH check is made if the 4th column contains a x'80' as can be seen below for resource class CAADMIN and others.

The new method involving the use of the RACFCLASS control statement would require the following statement to change PANEL to NOT issue a FASTAUTH check:
