Issue/Introduction

We have the following questions about external security and reports in View:

 . What is the default access level needed for a user to be able to access a CA-View database and its reports?

 . What is the default access level needed for a user to be able to run some utilities like ADLIST/SARBCH/SARGRW?

Environment

Release : 14.0

Resolution

The client had questions about the external security on their reports:

 . What is the default access level needed for a user to be able to access a CA-View
   database and its reports?

 . . View does not have any default access levels. 

     Anything default would be defined by the external security product. 

     You would need to define at least READ access to a report and all its pages, via
     the REPT and RAPS resources, respectively. 

     Also, you may possibly need to define at least READ access to logical views, via
     the VIEW resource. 

 . What is the default access level needed for a user to be able to run some utilities
   like ADLIST/SARBCH/SARGRW?

 . . ADLIST (SARSAM8) accesses the database and issues security calls like everything else. 

     Being the same as all of View's SARSAM routines, you would only need READ access
     to the View database data sets.

 . . SARBCH uses the same security as everything else. 

 . . SARGRW just prints information, so you would only need READ access to the database
     data sets. 

 . The access levels needed to run the View utilities are:

 . . . ADLIST - READ access
 . . . SARBCH - READ access, for all functions except DELETE and PRINT/EPRINT/BPRINT
                ALTER access, for the DELETE function
                UPDATE access, for the PRINT/EPRINT/BPRINT functions 
 . . . SARGRW - READ access
