Describing menu security
As an application designer, you need to provide information about a menu for the security administrator. The security administrator uses this information to decide who should have access to the menu and what authorities are required.
Examples of the type of information that a security administrator needs are:
- Whether any menu options require special authorities, such as *SAVSYS or *JOBCTL.
- Whether menu options call programs that adopt authority.
- What authority to objects is required for each menu option. You should only need to identify those authorities that are greater than normal public authority.
Figure 1 shows a sample format for providing this information.
