License Manager for IBM i Products
First publish date

Product-level security is a License Manager function that enforces additional product authority and command authority functions that may be available within an installed Precisely product.

When product-level security is turned on, an administrator can:

  • Limit access to License Manager and any installed Precisely product which supports additional authority functions by using the product authority function

  • Change the authority level of License Manager and product commands by using the command authority function.

For these authority levels are available for License Manager and MIMIX™ Software products. Product-level security must be turned on before any changes to product or command authority will take effect.


Product-level security is not enabled for Assure Security, but since it is enabled for License Manager (LAKEVIEW library), Assure Security users must grant administration product authority to all user profiles that will need to install Assure Security or add license keys as described below.


  • The user profile you use to perform this procedure must have *ADM authority to License Manager.

  • Users running functions are not affected by a change until the next time they access a function that is protected by product authority.

 To change product-level security for one or more product libraries, do the following:

  1. From the License Manager Main Menu, select option 2 (Work with Products) and press Enter.

  2. The Precisely Installed Products display appears. Type 30 next to the product libraries that you want and press Enter.

  3. On the Change Product Level Security display, specify the value you want for product authority at the State prompt, then press Enter.

Note: If you selected multiple product libraries in the previous step, you will see the Change Product Level Security display for each of the libraries you selected.

For information about displaying authorized user profiles for a product library, see Displaying authorities for authorized user profiles.

For information about granting, revoking, or changing an authority level for a user profile, see Changing product authority.
