Selang Output Limited to 100 Entries

CA Privileged Identity Management Endpoint (PIM) CA Privileged Access Manager (PAM) CA Privileged Access Manager - Server Control (PAMSC) CA Virtual Privilege Manager


In an attempt to audit all resources managed in the seosdb, the `list` command was run. However, it only lists 100 entries when more are known to be in seosdb. Why is the selang output limited?

PAMSC> list user
PAMSC> su test105
Data for USER 'test105'
Audit mode        : Login-Success, Failure, Login-Failure
PAMSC> exit

In this example, `list user` was used, but this occurs with all classes within the selang.


Privileged Identity Manager, all versions
PAM Server Control, all versions


The "query_size" setting determines the number of database entries which selang searches within seosdb, a PMDB, or a DMS/DH. By default, this number is 100. The setting can be found in the [lang] section of seos.ini in Unix or HKLM\SOFTWARE\ComputerAssociates\AccessControl\lang in Windows.


To increase the query_size setting, stop the PIM/PAMSC endpoint and change the value either by editing the registry key in Windows or using vi to update seos.ini in Unix. Once the value has been updated, start the endpoint again.

Additional Information

The default limit is 100 in order to maintain performance. Once the current activity has been performed, it is advised to set the value back to the default of 100.
