Issue/Introduction

A user is trying to allocate a dataset with a high level qualifier of that user's ACID. The user is permitted access to datasets with that high level qualifier. The following error occurs:

TSS7220E 102 J= jobname A=acid VOL=vol ACC=UPDATE DSN=master.catalog.dataset
TSS7227E UPDATE Access Not Granted to Dataset master.catalog.dataset
IKJ56893I DATA SET dataset.name NOT ALLLOCATED+
IGD17102I CATALOG ERROR IN DEFINING NONVSAM DATA SET dataset.name
RETURN CODE IS 56 REASON CODE IS 6 IGG0CLFT

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : Top Secret for z/OS

Resolution

Normally, to create a dataset, the user must have:
- UPDATE access to the user catalog
- READ access to the master catalog
- CREATE access to the catalog volume

Check to see if there is an alias that is supposed to be defined for the dataset but is not defined. If that is the case, define the alias to see if that resolves the error for UPDATE access to the master catalog.
