RBTADMIN and RBTUSER are user profiles that are created during installation of the Robot products on your IBM i. After the user profiles are created, they're registered into the SNADS directory tables on your system.

These profiles are designed to own all Robot objects. RBTADMIN is a member of the user class SECOFR and has all object (*ALLOBJ) authority. RBTUSER is a member of the user class PGMR and has the special authorities of job control (*JOBCTL), save system (*SAVSYS), and system configuration (*IOSYSCFG). Both profiles are shipped with their passwords set to *NONE, so they cannot be used to sign on to your system. Do not specify passwords for these profiles.

The RBTADMIN and RBTUSER profiles were created for the following reasons:

  • Corporate auditors requested that our objects be owned differently from IBM objects.
  • They allow us to build a secure product for your environment.
  • They isolate the Robot products from IBM changes to QPGMR or QSECOFR defaults.

These profiles have specific authorities that allow all Robot products to perform certain functions on your system. Without the profiles, the products will not perform as designed.

If you decide to change any attributes on the RBTADMIN or RBTUSER profiles, Fortra cannot guarantee that stability of our products and unexpected results may occur.
