Issue/Introduction

Description:

To match higher security standards, customers may need to avoid general authorisations as 'Trusted' or 'Operations' and replace those with qualified RACF permissions.

Solution:

  1. If you remove RACF attribut 'TRUSTED' and the profile ** of class PROGRAM has UACC=READ, you may get:
    ICH408I USER(STCSYSV) GROUP(STC) NAME(CA-SYSVIEW ) 640IEFIB600 CL(PROGRAM) INSUFFICIENT ACCESS AUTHORITY FROM ** (G)ACCESS INTENT(READ) ACCESS ALLOWED(NONE)CSV025I PROGRAM CONTROLLED MODULE IEFIB600 NOT ACCESSED, USER UNAUTHORIZEDIEF170I 1 SYSVIEW CSV025I PROGRAM CONTROLLED MODULE IEFIB600 NOT ACCECSV028I ABEND306-30 JOBNAME=SYSVIEW STEPNAME=STARTINGIEF170I 1 SYSVIEW CSV028I ABEND306-30 JOBNAME=SYSVIEW STEPNAME=STA
    because Universal Access (UACC) is not used for RESTRICTED ids, meaning that you will need to add STCSYSV to the access list for CLASS=PROGRAM, or remove the RESTRICTED attribute from the STCSYSV id.

  2. To access logstreams, see the documentation in the INST004x jobs.
         - LOGSTRM (as documented in the jobs)
  3. SYSVIEW needs ALTER or UPDATE access to the resource classes:
         - DATASET xxxxx.CAPDATA.** (G)             - ALTER     - FACILITY CSVAPF.** (G)                   - UPDATE     - OPERCMDS MVS.STOP.STC.SYSVUSER.SYSVUSER  - UPDATE     - OPERCMDS MVS.MODIFY.STC.SYSVIEW.SYSVIEW  - UPDATE
  4. there may be more commands to authorize, the advantage of using this method is, that you are well aware, who is authorized.
