Normal MIMIX processes run under the MIMIXOWN user profile, which ships with *ALLOBJ special authority. Therefore, it is not necessary for other users to account for journaling authority requirements when using MIMIX commands (STRJRNFE, STRJRNIFSE, STRJRNOBJE) to start journaling.

When the MIMIX journal managers are started, or when the Build Journaling Environment (BLDJRNENV) command is used, MIMIX checks the public authority (*PUBLIC) for the journal. If necessary, MIMIX changes public authority so the user ID in use has the appropriate authority to start journaling.

Authority requirements must be met to enable the automatic journaling of newly created objects and if you use IBM commands to start journaling instead of MIMIX commands.

  • If you create database files, data areas, or data queues for which you expect automatic journaling at creation, the user ID creating these objects must have the required authority to start journaling.

  • If you use the IBM commands (STRJRNPF, STRJRN, STRJRNOBJ) to start journaling, the user ID that performs the start journaling request must have the appropriate authority requirements.

For journaling to be successfully started on an object, one of the following authority requirements must be satisfied:

  • The user profile of the user attempting to start journaling for an object must have *ALLOBJ special authority.

  • The user profile of the user attempting to start journaling for an object must have explicit *ALL object authority for the journal to which the object is to be journaled.

  • Public authority (*PUBLIC) must have *OBJALTER, *OBJMGT, and *OBJOPR object authorities for the journal to which the object is to be journaled.
