License Manager provides the capability to enable additional security to protect your MIMIX environment and limit access to the product. These functions provide an additional level of security beyond that available with IBM i.

When enabled, product-level security, enforces the additional Vision-provided product authority and command authority functions.  

  • Product authority allows an administrator to set or change the product authority level needed for a user profile or for public access to a specific MIMIX product. These authority levels are in addition to the standard IBM i security levels.

  • Command authority allows an administrator to change the authority level of specific MIMIX commands. When product-level security is enabled, you can use the command authority function to raise or lower the authority level for a command or to reset it to the shipped authority values.

Any authorization levels that you set for specific user profiles to control access to a product or command are not enabled or enforced unless you take explicit action to set product-level security to "On" for each product. It is recommended that you take advantage of this additional security.

This appendix lists the authority level of MIMIX commands when product-level security is turned on. For more information about authority levels for License Manager commands, setting product-level security, and using the product authority and command authority functions, see the License Manager for IBM i Products book.
