TAA Tools

The Display User Authority 4 command lists all objects in a library
that a named user is not explicitly authorized to.  For example, if
the user should have *CHANGE authority to all objects in the library,
a line would be listed for each object where the user has 1) no
explicit authority, 2) is specified as *EXCLUDE, or 3) has only *USE

A user has explict authority to an object if the user appears on the
object's list of authorized users or on the object's authorization

You must have *ALLOBJ special authority to use DSPUSRAUT4.

A typical command would be:


A display would appear of all objects in the library that SMITH did
not have at least *CHANGE authority to.

      TAA9891    The user has not authority to the library
