Access to the various components of the LANSA system is controlled by which entries appear on the user's LANSA menus. If the component is on the user's menu it can be used, otherwise it cannot.
To allow a user access to LANSA an option in the housekeeping component of LANSA is used. The user name is specified and then a list of all the LANSA menus and all the entries on the menus is displayed.
To authorize the user to have (and thus be able to use) certain entries on his/her menu all that has to be done is go through the list and 'tick' the ones required.
To 'unauthorize' the user to remove (and thus not be able to use) certain entries on his/her menu all that is required is to go through the list and blank out (or 'untick'?) the ones no longer required.
The steps involved in these procedures are described in more detail in the following sections.
