    Hi,Use CHGUSRPRF command & Set "Limit capabilities" LMTCPB to *YES for those users. This will remove below two options from OA Menu.10. Manage your system, users, and devices.   11. Customize your system, users, and devices.ORUse CHGUSRPRF command & Set "Attention program" ATNPGM to *NONE to disable the OA menu completely..-Ketan

    You can't modify the menu. If you don't want users to do some function, don't give them the authority to do it. If they have the authority, you won't stop them by removing menu options. Tom

    *LMTCPB and user class can change what options are shown on IBM menus (and any menu that tests those attributes), but it doesn't stop authorized users from performing the functions without needing to use the menus. Menus are not what allow the functions; they only provide organized access to the functions. There are many alternative paths to the functions outside of any menus. Tom

    If you mean the menu you get when typing GO ASSIST, I do not believe you can change that. On the user profile you can set different Menu's (programs) on the Attention Program parameter. The System request menu can also be changed. It is controlled through CPF message CPX2313.

    As mentioned by others, you cannot really change the ASSIST menu. You could however build your own ASSIST menu into a library and then make sure that library is earlier in the system library list than QSYS. By default users would then get your ASSIST rather than the IBM provided ASSIST.

    Pretty much everything you can do with the IBM ASSIST menu can be easily accomplished with your custom ASSIST (plus or minus whatever customization you need to do). Here  you will find the APIs IBM provides for just this type of reason.

    In addition to these OA APIs there are also a few other APIs used by the IBM ASSIST menu. F9 (Command line) for instance is found here.
