TAA Tools

The   Convert  Object   Authority  command   creates   an  outfile   of
authorities for  one or more objects  in a library.  The  model file is
QAOBJAUT  (same as used  by DSPOBJAUT).  The  outfile is always OBJAUTP
with a format  name of QSYDSAUT.   The system command DSPOBJAUT  allows
output for a single object.

A typical command would be;


One  record for  each authority  for each  *JOBD type  object  found in
LIB1  would be output  to OBJAUTP in  QTEMP.  Note that  there would be
more records  than  the number  of *JOBD  objects  because there  is  a
record output for each user that is authorized.
