(Optional) Send message

You need the assistance of a security administrator to complete this customization task, which requires the following resources or special customization tasks:
  • Define FEK.CMD.SEND.** security profiles
  • Update TSO logon procedure to add FEK.SFEKAUTH to STEPLIB

z/OS® Explorer allows sending messages to clients, similar to the TSO SEND command. Messages can be sent via an operator command (MODIFY SEND), a z/OS UNIX command (send) or the TSO SEND command. Messages are delivered immediately to connected users, and are also stored for users that log on later. This message buffer can be cleared using the operator command and the z/OS UNIX command.

z/OS Explorer will query your security product for access permits to FEK.CMD.SEND.** profiles to determine if the requestor is allowed to send a message or clear the buffer. The RSED started task user ID is verified when using the operator command interface.
