Product authority is a provided security function that 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.

Note: The QSECOFR user profile is not affected by the product authority function unless it is explicitly listed as a user within product authority.

When product-level security is enabled, you can use the product authority function to do the following:

  • Establish an authority level to access a product for the public access class (*PUBLIC). User profiles which are not explicitly assigned an authority level use this authority level when accessing the product.

  • Control access to the functions that a user profile can access within a product by assigning one of several authority levels to that user profile. Explicitly authorizing a user profile to an authority level limits access to functions requiring authority up to and including that level.

  • Exclude a user profile from accessing a product.

  • Authorize user profiles to different security levels for different products in the same library. For example, a user may have one authority level for Assure MIMIX Enterprise and another authority level for Assure MIMIX for PowerHA.
