On the WRKSPLFE command, once a user sees the list of spooled files, is there any way to easily limit which options a given user can see and subsequently, execute? For example, I want somebody to have the authority to "E=ESndMail" but do not want anybody to use "I=CpytoIFS", from the WRKSPLFE command. I want to be able to limit who can do what intereactivly, without affecting any batch jobs that they submit jobs where our programmers have embedded a ESEND command.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Jim,

To limit use of a menu option, use OS/400 object authority to restrict use of the command that corresponds to the menu option.

In this case the command to restrict would be CPYSPLIFS in the ESEND library.


Option 2 - Edit authority
