CA ACF2 - z/OS

Issue/Introduction

A NEXTKEY rule with a $PREFIX exists in the database, but there is no NEXTKEY definition in the rule for the $PREFIX
would it be correct to delete that NEXTKEY $KEY record without impact?

Example

$KEY(ABC)
A123 uid(*) r(a) w(a)
B345 uid(*) r(a)

$KEY(ABC1)
XYZ123 UID(*) R(A)
XYZ456.A123 UID(*) R(A) W(A)

 

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS

Resolution

From the information available, the rule with $KEY(ABC1) could be deleted.
