System Request Menu
How can you control access to the System Request Menu ? Want to deny end users, but allow programmers, operators, etc. Thanks, Bill Poulin

Hi,

That’s the attention key program, not the system request menu.

You could try restricting the authority on the QMNSYSRQ program by revoking the end users access (even easier if they all belong to a group profile).

Martin Gilbert.

Martin,

It was the System Request Menu, QGMNSYSR. After I submitted my question I found what we really wanted was to secure the ability to Transfer to a Second Job. We were having an issue with record locks.
Anyway, I revoked authority to the command TFRSECJOB for *Public and then granted authority to the command to the QPGMR Group.

This appears to have solved my problem.

Thank You for the assistance,
Bill Poulin

    Check out www.foursquares.ca. There is a custom menu system that can be called from a command line, hooked to a user profile (signon), and hooked to the attention key program. Security can be set per user, per menu, etc. You can download a free trial and see if it works for you. You can email info@foursquares.ca for more information.
