Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The quick way to view one of your request, user profile disabled, is to use DSPMSG QSYSMSG.
If it doesn’t exist, just CRTMSGQ.

Hi, i might be wrong, but as far as i know, it can be done only by QAUDJRN , i.e by Audit Journaling and enhanced DSPLOG.

=============================================================

Since most authority failures, etc., simply won’t be shown in QHST, it’s not very useful to look there.

E.g., try using UPDDTA against a file that you aren’t authorized to update. The command will throw an authorization error, but there will be nothing in QHST.

The audit journal is the correct source for information of this type. This assumes, of course, that auditing is turned on. If it isn’t, there’s not much point in searching for failure notices.

    If you do not know all the CPF error messages you can do a WRKMSGD and go down the list to see which ones you want to filter for in the QHST log. CPFADFA 30 User not authorized to program. CPFAE5C 40 Object authority value not valid. CPFAE5D 40 Data authority value not valid. Hope this helps. TPinky

    I found out that if we enter a command and press F4 and then F1 on the top, at the bottom there is a list of CP, I forgot that (I'm an old guy).
