iSeries Data Transfer
Hi recently i discovered that my data transfer from iseries server aplication does not apply the object authority that i have in place so, all of my users can browse and download objects that they arent supposed to. My question would be if theres any way to disable the browse button on the apllication so they can download only their files? Of course that any suggestions are welcome. Thanks

    My question would be if theres any way to disable the browse button on the apllication so they can download only their files? The best thing to do is fix the application so that it doesn't override the authorities that you set on the data. This assumes that this statement is in fact true: ...my data transfer from iseries server aplication does not apply the object authority that i have in place so... If it isn't, then we need to know what's really happening in order to know a correct response. Tom

    If downloads are a problem, why install the capability on the user's PCs? Uninstall file transfer. If terminal emulation is the only facility a user needs, don't install iSeries Access -- just install a basic emulator like MochaSoft. Why use up an iSeries Access license for users who shouldn't be using the functions? It should be easier to eliminate the function than to try to customize how it works inside. Tom

    Check the authority on the libraries. We found that prevents users from downloading data they should not.

    Try Application Administration to Deny access to File transfers

    Check the authority on the libraries. Since the application "does not apply the object authority", we have to assume that the 'application' (whatever it is) is overriding the authority, perhaps by running under owner authority or by doing a profile swap, etc. Until we know why it "does not apply the object authority", changing authority shouldn't make any difference. Try Application Administration to Deny access to File transfers But that doesn't seem to be what is wanted. File transfers should apparently be allowed, but only if the {Browse} button can be disabled. Only transfers of some files should be allowed, or some similar situation. Denying the function would deny those transfers. Tom

    IF user is not PC smart you can go to file/properties on a transfer and check the RUN automatically and close on completion boxes so user can not mess with setup. Run the transfer from a menu option with strpccmd and they just get results. Might work. It does for me unless user is smart enough to find it and play with properties to chamge it.
