How AS400 checks the object authority?

30 pts.
Tags:
All Object Authority
AUTL
One of the file has authority like this. The object was secured by XYZ authorization list. In that authorization list *Public is *Exclude and the object has *Public *USE authority. I would like to know that which authority will be checked first when user was trying to access that object, AUTL authority or *USE authority which is there for *Public to that object. Thanks – Nit400

    Until *PUBLIC is set to *AUTL your authorization list isn't even being used. It means nothing.

    Uhh.. not quite true, Dan... Help on the edit authority for an object shows this : The value *AUTL is also valid when public authorities are being defined. It indicates that the public authority specifications in the authorization list used by this object should be used to determine public authority. So yes, for "public" authorities, you have to specify *AUTL before the auth list is used for public authorities. But, if authorization on the object is set to PUBLIC *EXCLUDE you can still use the auth list to assign authority to groups or users. Regards Mike

    How would you use an *autl for any group besides *public, and what would be the point? The biggest mistake I've seen with *autl is where they are assigned to an object but not to any group, so they don't do anything, but again, I've never seen them used on any group but *public.

    I've used authorisation lists to secure a group of objects to a specific set of users and keep *PUBLIC from getting to them.
