When the option to review, change or allow access to the LANSA system has been chosen from the housekeeping menu a screen like the example following will be presented initially:
Enter the name of the IBM i user who is to be allowed access to LANSA, or whose existing access rights to LANSA are to be reviewed or changed and press the ENTER key.
The resulting display will look like this:
The resulting display shows all menus in the LANSA system and all entries on each of the menus. When the screen is first presented the user's current right to use a menu entry is indicated by a 'Y' (for YES) in the right hand column headed 'Allow access'.
Additional entries are shown under the heading Visual LANSA Authorities. These are not IBM i menu entries. They are used to control user access within a slave Visual LANSA system.
Working from this display it is possible to:
Note: Menu 'hierarchy' must be observed when allowing access to the various menu entries. For instance authorizing the user to 'Create a new process definition' (on the process control menu) will not allow access unless the user is also authorized to 'Display process control menu' (on the main system menu).
Note: Changes to a user's access rights to LANSA only take effect after they exit from LANSA, and any connected jobs, and then re-invoke LANSA.
