CA Output Management Web Viewer CA View

Issue/Introduction

I'm in the process of installing Web Viewer 14.0.2 and the documentation at the TechDocs portal for Web Viewer under the 'Security Requirements' section under Configure only provides security profile defintions for repository admin authority for Top Secret and there are none for RACF. What are the correct profile names and under what RACF class should they be defined?

Environment

Release : 14.0

Component : CA Output Management Web Viewer

IBM RACF

CA View

Resolution

The following assumes that the CHA1VIEW class is defined and activated base according to the CA View documentation.

Define the Web Viewer Admin resource to the CHA1VIEW class the same way it is done for the base VIEW resources:

RDEF CHA1VIEW(WEBVWR.ADMIN) OWNER(VIEWADMN) UACC(ALTER)

Then add the desired user to that group, and set it as its default group (this might already have been done for the CA View setup):

CO () GROUP(VIEWADMN)
ALU () DFLTGRP(VIEWADMN)

Alternatively, give access to the resource directly with something like:

PERMIT WEBVWR.ADMIN CL(CHA1VIEW) ACCESS(READ) ID()
