Administrative authorities

Within Db2, privileges are grouped into administrative authorities, and each administrative authority is vested with a specific set of privileges.

Begin general-use programming interface information.

The following table lists all of the Db2 for z/OS® administrative authorities and the grantable privileges that each of them has.
