For years, if we wanted to get information from RACF to use in a REXX routine, we were limited to issuing a list command, then capturing the output and then creating convoluted parsing routines to try to get that piece of data we were looking for. While we were able to accomplish this, we were always concerned that the format of the list command output would change. IBM even stated that the list commands were NOT a supported programming interface.
In z/OS® release 1.11, that all changed. We were finally given a true programming interface. IRRXUTIL is a REXX function that allows us to programmatically extract profile information for USERS, GROUPS, GENERAL RESOURCES and SETROPTS. This session will demonstrate the use of the IRRXUTIL function for the various types of profiles to get you started in its use. A basic understanding of REXX coding is needed to be able to understand the material.-Brian Marshall-Vanguard Integrity Professionals
