Access to the LANSA system is automatic. Any IBM i user can type in the command LANSA or call program LANSA and the main system menu will be displayed.
However, unless the user has been specifically allowed access to some component(s) within the LANSA system (or is part of a 'group' profile that has) there will be no entries on the main system menu and the user will not be allowed to do anything within LANSA. You set the components to which a user has access using the Review user access to LANSA system on the Housekeeping menu.
The steps involved in reviewing, changing or allowing access to the various components of LANSA are as follows:
1. Select the option to | |
review, change or allow | HOUSE- |
access to LANSA on the | KEEPING |
the housekeeping menu. | MENU |
2. Specify the name of the | |
user whose access is to | SPECIFY |
be allowed, reviewed or | USER |
3. Review, allow or change | |
access to the various | REVIEW/ |
components of LANSA. | CHANGE/ |
| ALLOW |
| ACCESS |
You can remove a user's name via the Remove a LANSA User via the Administration menu.
Access to the Components within LANSA
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.
