    PRODUCT:

    DELTA IMS for DBCTL



    QUESTION:

    When converting ACF2 to RACF security, are there any specific security parameters that need to be updated?


    ANSWER:

    As described in the DELTA IMS User Space (http://documents.bmc.com/supportu/documents/88/80/498880/498880.pdf), for DELTA IMS utilization of RACF Security to be in effect the following steps must be performed:
     
    1) Define the resource.
    You use the RACF RDEFINE command or an equivalent command to define DELTA IMS to class APPL. You can specify as many parameters as required using RDEFINE. The following is an example of the RDEFINE command:

    RDEFINE APPL DELTAIMS UACC(READ)
     
    2) Define the level of access.
    Use the RACF PERMIT command or an equivalent command to grant Update or control level to as many user IDs as you want authorized. The following is an example of the PERMIT command:

    PERMIT DELTAIMS CLASS(APPL) ID(userid) ACCESS(UPDATE)

    c) Relink the DELTA IMS panel processor module.
    Use JCL similar to that provided in DLACNTL member DLA#RSCL to relink the DELTA IMS panel processor module and implement control through RACF or an equivalent security utility.
