Issue/Introduction

Can you explain what this startup parm means?  the security team removed access to some of the individuals ID's and they lost some authority within OPS MVS.  

 

This was what I received in a message to me - 

 

It was approved to remove OPERATOR elevated access from an id and after that happened he lost some of the OPSMVS menu options.

Environment

Release : 13.5

Component : OPS/MVS

Resolution

This parameter designates that only one ruleset can contain SEC rules, so that it can then be further protected by your external security package, where you can thereby limit access to users who can create/delete/define rules.   

As per the manual:  

SECURITYRULESET Parameter
This parameter defines the rule set name of the library from which security rules can be activated. When you set this parameter, the specified library becomes the only library from which you can activate security rules, preventing unauthorized users from using another rule set to override the security rule that your data center has implemented.
For more information on security rules, see Security Rules.
* Default value
      No default
* Other possible values

* Set or modify this parameter...
       At initialization


Example: SECURITYRULESET
This function defines SYSSECUR as the security rule set to activate.
