On a i5 V5R4 an AS400 analyst who has 3 junior programmers working under him is not able to delete objects created by them. All these objects are in a shared library with a *all permission to all of them including the analyst. Since the analyst is not the owner of the object, he is unable to delete objecst created by his junior staff. Providing *allobj authority is not recommended. What should be done so that the leader is able to delete any objects inside the shared library created by any of his members.

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

Change the user profiles so that created objects are owned by a group and then all users with that group profiles would have acess to the objects created by anyone in the group.
Parm is:
Owner . . OWNER *GRPPRF

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

The question doesn’t make total sense. It’s not necessary to be the owner of an object in order to delete it. Clearly, the analyst <b>does not</b> have “*ALL” authority to the object. Some authority has been withheld. I suspect that the “*ALL” authority only refers to data authorities, and the object authorities do not include *OBJEXIST.
