Special Authorities and Task Tracking
LANSA has two special user authorities:
LANSA System Owner
- The LANSA System owner has authority to all objects in LANSA.
- Task tracking and security rules do not apply to the LANSA System owner. This user ID can use any open task ID and will be allowed to access any objects in the system regardless of the task ID being used. Be very careful when using the LANSA System Owner ID.
Partition Security Officer
- The Partition Security Officer is nominated on the partition definition. This user profile has authority to all objects in the LANSA partition.
- A user ID, which is the partition security officer or part of the QSECOFR group, is exempt from Special Authorities and Task Tracking rules. These user IDs can use any open task ID and will be allowed to access any objects in the system regardless of the task ID being used. Be very careful when using these types of user IDs.
It is recommended that proper controls be placed on these users. The use of these profiles is not recommended when using a Minimum Tracking approach.
If you are configuring LANSA for i Master System, refer to Partition Definitions - Create, Change or Delete and the System Definition Data Area in the LANSA for i User Guide.
If you are configuring a Visual LANSA Independent System, refer to System Data and Partition Description.
