    The RACF_PROFILE field is reported empty for the newlist type
    AS_DD for data sets on DASD devices with DSORG=PS. Also the
    CLASS and RESOURCE fields might be reported as empty for data
    sets with the same name and present on multiple systems selected
    for the report.
    

Problem conclusion

  • zSecure Audit has been modified so that the RACF_PROFILE field
    for newlist type AS_DD is reported correctly. Please note the
    documentation changes as provided by the APAR tracking comment
