Carsten’s Corner: Compare Object Authority for a Group of Objects

In the May 18, 2011, issue of the newsletter I presented the Compare Object Authority (CMPOBJAUT) command which, true to its name, compares the authority-related attributes of two specified objects. Given the situation in which you want to perform such a comparison for a group of objects, there’s now another new command that can help you accomplish this task in a single execution: the Work with Object Authority (WRKOBJAUT) command.

The WRKOBJAUT command allows you to select a generic group of objects (e.g., AP*) or *ALL objects in a specified library. Each object is compared to either a reference object or the corresponding object in a different library. You have the option of further narrowing the selected object range by criteria such as Object Attribute, User-defined Attribute, Creator User Profile, Owning User Profile, as well as Object Create, Change, and Last-used Date ranges.
