    You will need to tell us what "Printer Authorization List" you are asking about before anyone knows how to answer. -- Tom

    Sorry Tom, Under Security, then Printer Authorization brings up the Printer Output Queue Inquiry.  I guess thats what I should have called it.  We have to add remote printers and validators into the list but noone can tell us why or what all goes into it or what uses it.  It can't be major because there are alot of things from the 'WRKOUTQ *ALL' that have never been added to it.

    Okay, next question...   Under Security,...   What "Security"? The GO SECURITY menu? The Information Center 'Security' topic? The System i Navigator 'Security' node? Somewhere else?   Tom

    Click Controls, hover over 'System Controls Menu', hover over 'Security Menu', Click on 'Printer Authorization'.  This brings up the 'Printer Output Queue Inquiry' screen.

    On the Horizon Main Menu screen there are 8 tabs/headings/choices/options.  Using the mouse left click or single click, whichever you prefer, on the 'Controls' tab.  This generates a drop down box.   One of the choices is ‘System Controls Menu’.  Hover over it to populate another box.  This one contains an entry called ‘Security Menu’.  Hover over it to populate another box.  This box contains ‘Printer Authorization’ option.  Using the mouse left click on it and this brings up the ‘Printer Output Queue Inquiry’ screen.

    Sorry Tom, I understand why we're not on the same page.  We us Horizon with GUI screens not greenscreens.  Does that help?

    We us Horizon with GUI screens...   In that case, you'll need to ask your developer what the GUI panels were created from. The developer is the only one who knows what objects are being manipulated in the background.   However, you might be able to do some research with PDM.   It seems likely that your system has an authorization list that has text "Printer Authorization List". The WRKOBJPDM command can bring up a list of *AUTL objects in library QSYS. If you filter the list to include those that have 'printer' in the text, you could find the one that's being modified.   If you know which *AUTL, you can list the objects on it and see which users are constrained by it.   Beyond that, it's totally up to the security policy that was apparently created for your server. It should be written down somewhere, but we have no way to know what it says nor if anything on your server enforces it.   Tom
