A User must specify a valid IBM i (iSeries) User ID and password within Surveyor/400 to connect to an iSeries system. Surveyor/400 will honor any existing OS/400 user authorities specified for the objects and libraries on the system. In other words, if a User is not authorized to an object on the system, then they will not be able to access this object through Surveyor/400.
In addition to normal OS/400 User security and object authorities, Surveyor/400 provides an additional layer of security called “User Access”. This User Access feature allows designated Surveyor/400 administrators to control which Surveyor/400 features and iSeries libraries each User has access to.
Each iSeries machine (or LPAR) is configured with its own User Access settings. For instance, a Surveyor/400 User could be granted User Access rights to modify database records on a Development iSeries, but can be restricted from modifying database records on a Production iSeries.
A Surveyor/400 User can either be configured with its own authority or the user can adopt its authority from a User Group.
The Surveyor/400 User Access feature can be accessed by right-clicking an iSeries system within the Visual Tree, then selecting the ‘User Access’ option.
