TAA Tools

The Print Library Authority  2 command prints the authorities  of users
to  library objects  (not  the objects  within a  library).   Different
options  exist  for  the  list of  libraries,  the  type  of libraries,
library ownership, and  if only a  single user's authorities should  be

You must have *ALLOBJ special authority to use PRTLIBAUT2.

See  the  PRTLIBAUT tool  to  print  authorities  of objects  within  a

A typical command would be:

          PRTLIBAUT2    LIB(*ALLUSR)

A listing would be produced with multiple lines for each library:

  **   A line for the owner and his authorizations.

  **   A line for the *PUBLIC user.

  **   A line for any individual authorizations.

  **   If  the library is controlled  by an *AUTL  and the *PUBLIC user
       is *AUTL, an additional line  is printed describing the  *PUBLIC
       authorities to the authorization list.

Command options  exist to eliminate the  owner line, the  *PUBLIC line,
just print  the *PUBLIC line, just print  libraries owned by a specific
user, etc.

See  also  the   PRTLIBAUT  command   which  will  print   a  list   of
authorizations for the objects within a library.

PRTLIBAUT2 escape messages you can monitor for

None.  Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   LIB           The library  to be  printed.   The default is  *ALLUSR
                 for all user libraries.

                 *ALL,  *USRLIBL,  or   *IBM  may  also  be  specified.
                 These  have  the  same  meanings  as  on  the  DSPOBJD

   TYPE          The type  of library to  be printed.   The default  is

                 *PROD or  *TEST may be  used to print  just production
                 or  test  libraries  (as defined  by  the  CRTLIB TYPE

   OWNER         The owner of the library  to be printed.  The  default
                 is *ALL for all owners.

                 A  specific owner  may  be named  in  which case  only
                 libraries owned by that user will be printed.

   USER          The    User    to    be    printed   for    individual
                 authorizations.   The default  is  *ALL.   A  specific
                 user or *PUBLIC may be specified.

                 Entering  a  name  or  *PUBLIC  will  allow  a  simple
                 review of the authorities for that user.

                 If the  *PUBLIC user line  is printed and  the library
                 is  controlled by an authorization  list for which the
                 public authority  comes from  the authorization  list,
                 a  second  line  is  printed.   It  will  contain  the
                 *PUBLIC authority to the authorization list.

                 Note  that if a specific user  (other than *PUBLIC) is
                 specified  and  the   object  is   controlled  by   an
                 authorization list,  the listing does not  include any
                 authorizations    the   user    may   have    to   the
                 authorization list.  The  additional line only  occurs
                 for the *PUBLIC user.

   PRTOWNER      A  *YES/*NO parameter  for whether  a  line should  be
                 printed for  the owner.  The default  is *YES to print
                 a line for the owner and his authorities.

                 The  owner  name appears  on  the first  line  of each
                 library printed and in  a separate column.   The owner
                 line  can  be  eliminated  to  reduce  the  amount  of
                 output  if the owner  typically has all  rights to the

   PRTPUBLIC     A *YES/*NO  parameter for  whether  a line  should  be
                 printed for  the *PUBLIC user.   The default  is *YES.
                 *NO  may be  specified to not  print the  *PUBLIC user

If a USER parameter is  specified, libraries that are not  specifically
authorized to the user  may still be accessible because  of the *PUBLIC


  **   You must have *ALLOBJ authority to use PRTLIBAUT2.

  **   See  the previous  comments about  the library  being controlled
       by an Authorization List.


The following TAA Tools must be on your system:

     CHKALLOBJ       Check *ALLOBJ special authority
     CVTLIBOBJD      Convert library object description
     RTVOBJAUT       Retrieve object authority
     RTVOBJD2        Retrieve object description 2
