Securing spooled files
You can specify several parameters to control the security of a spooled file.
A spooled file is a special type of object on the system. You cannot directly grant and revoke authority to view and manipulate a spooled file. The authority to a spooled file is controlled by several parameters on the output queue that holds the spooled file.
When you create a spooled file, you are the owner of that file. You can always view and manipulate any spooled files you own, regardless of how the authority to the output queue is defined. You must have *READ authority to add new entries to an output queue. If your authority to an output queue is removed, you can still access any entries you own on that queue using the Work with Spooled Files (WRKSPLF) command.
The security parameters for an output queue are specified using the Create Output Queue (CRTOUTQ) command or the Change Output Queue (CHGOUTQ) command. You can display the security parameters for an output queue using the Work with Output Queue Description (WRKOUTQD) command.
