Issue/Introduction

Is there a way in ACF2 to allow overtyping certain SDSF fields?

Resolution

Yes, it is possible to allow or deny access to overtypable fields in SDSF with ACF2 resource rules. Each overtypable field has an SDSF resource name associated with it that allows for resource access control. Here are some examples.

For the DEST overtypable field:

SET R(xxx)  *Replace xxx with type code for SDSF
RECKEY ISFATTR ADD( OUTPUT.DEST UID(User UID Here) ALLOW) *To allow a user to overtype the DEST field
RECKEY ISFATTR ADD( OUTPUT.DEST UID(User UID Here) PREVENT) *To deny a user to overtype the DEST field

Another example is PRTDEST, which has different resource validations depending on the panel that is being accessed:

RECKEY ISFATTR ADD( JOB.PRTDEST UID(User UID Here) ALLOW) *To allow a user for the I > ST panel
RECKEY ISFATTR ADD( RDR.PRTDEST UID(User UID Here) ALLOW) *To allow a user for the RDR panel
