This information describes the minimum security requirements for the LAKEVIEW user profile provided with License Manager, which is installed with the Assure MIMIX™ Software, Assure iTERA, Assure iOptimize, and Assure Security products. Each enterprise is unique. Your enterprise may require exceptions to the information provided here.

The LAKEVIEW user profile is created with an initial menu of *SIGNOFF so that it cannot be used to sign on to the system. The LAKEVIEW user profile owns all of the objects in the LAKEVIEW and MIMIXQGPL libraries and has access to all the objects that make up the License Manager product. User interface objects, such as commands, command processing programs, display panels, menus, and help, have a public authority (*PUBLIC) of use (*USE). All product user interfaces are protected by Precisely product-level security when that function is set to “On”.

The LAKEVIEW user profile is created by default as a programmer class (*PGMR) user profile with selected special authorities, including all object authority (*ALLOBJ). Unless the user profile running the install has *ALLOBJ authority, the LAKEVIEW user profile needs this level of authority to access information needed for install operations.


  • *ALLOBJ authority is a very useful authority but it must be used with care because it leaves your system vulnerable to misuse. Protecting your assets from unauthorized use describes considerations for changing this authority.

  • The following table identifies the special authorities and the operations for which the LAKEVIEW user profile requires a special authority:

    Special Authority

    License Manager operations that require special authority


    In License Manager this authority is needed to access all stream files required for installing updates to Precisely products and the objects within the product libraries.


    Required for save and restore operations during installation of updates.
