APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • RA.R using search filter of  *L&NUM* produces "Nothing
    selected".  The target profile stored in RACF contains a
    variable from RACFVARS.  The ampersand makes this a generic
    profile, and the data stored is not the literal "&".
    

Local fix

  • Use an EGN search filter of **.L&NUM*.** instead.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: Users of zSecure Admin/Audit for RACF        *
    *                 exploiting a special form of filter          *
    *                 specification like *<string>* to perform     *
    *                 profile selection.                           *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: zSecure Admin/Audit does not honor an   *
    *                      ampersands while performing profile     *
    *                      selection using a sub-string search     *
    *                      specification like *<string>*.          *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the PTF provided.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    When a special form of filter specification like *<string>* is
    specified for MASK/FILTER search parameter, the zSecure
    Admin/Audit does not perform a proper profile selection in cases
    where the <string> specification contains ampersands or the
    <string> consists only one character.
    

Problem conclusion

  • zSecure Admin/Audit has been modified so that a special form of
    filter specification like *<string>* specified for MASK/FILTER
    search parameter performs properly in cases where the <string>
    specification contains ampersands.
