iSeries (OS/400) Library Permissions Access

If a library containing programs has CHANGE or ALL access, does it imply that the program objects within it can be "replaced" with updated versions? If public access on the program objects contained within the library had PUBLIC authority of "Exclude", would that prevent the objects from being overwritten / replaced even if the PUBLIC authority of the containing library is set to ALL?

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

Pretty much ‘yes’ to all of that. You need appropriate rights to both the library and object to do anything. For most tasks that only requires *READ rights to the library, but you do need *ADD / *DLT to add or remove an object (plus *EXIST to the object for delete).

And you also need rights to the object appropriate to the task you are performing. eg: *USE rights to run a command, appropriate data rights to open a file, etc.
