IT is doing an internal audit of our CA software. One of the things that I have been asked is how are users created, tracked and managed. Our users are created by IT Security and other groups, so I'm not concerned with that part. I currently do no tracking or managing for users within Endevor. I came across an article on the community bulletin board about getting a count of active users. It mentions using the SMF report, I'm guessing #42. I found the information below on SMF in the admin manual. How can I determine if our Endevor was set up for SMF logging? I'm assuming the setup for it is the same in v18 as it is in v17, so I am hoping that I can get this question answered.
SMF historical reports summarize security violations and Element activity recorded by CA Endevor® SCM. These reports are available when SMF logging is in use at your site and are generated using the SMF records written during CA Endevor® SCM processing. The following reports show Alter action activity:
The quickest and easiest way to tell if you have SMF recording turned on is to display your Endevor site information. From the Endevor primary option menu, select option 1 (Display) then option 3 (Site). If SMF recording is turned on then the SMF Record Number will be displayed on the Site Information panel.
Enable SMF Recording
The SMF option records each action and each security violation that occurs during CA Endevor SCM processing. SMF recording is done on an Environment-by-Environment basis. Therefore, you can selectively enable SMF recording for each of your Environments. The SMF option can write out the following SMF records:
■ Security records- For each security violation, or each error that is returned from the security exit (exit 1).
■ Activity records- For each action executed, except for the following actions: Print, Display, Copy, and List. Activity records are written out at the end of action processing.
The administrator enables the SMF option in the Defaults table (C1DEFLTS). Per Environment, recording can be enabled for security records, activity records, or both.
Follow these steps:
1. Edit the SMFREC# parameter in the C1DEFLTS TYPE=MAIN macro to specify an SMF record number for for your site.
SMFREC#- Specifies the SMF record number assigned to SMF records written by CA Endevor SCM at this site. Default is 0, which disables SMF recording.
Talk to a systems programmer at your site to ensure that you are collecting the SMF records related to the record number specified in the SMFREC# parameter. Recording records is controlled in SYS1.PARMLIB(SMFPRMxx).
2. Edit the following parameters in the C1DEFLTS TYPE=ENVRNMNT.
SMFACT- Specifies whether to write SMF activity records for this Environment.
Y- Writes activity records for the Environment.
N- Does not write activity records for the Environment. Default is N.
SMFSEC- Specifies whether to write SMF security records for this Environment.
Y-Writes security records for the Environment.
N- Does not write security records for the Environment. Default is N.
3. Reassemble and link C1DEFLTS to activate the modifications.
Note: You can use the CSV utility to extract SMF record data corresponding to activity related to CA Endevor SCM actions or to security violations recorded by CA Endevor SCM. For more information, see the chapter Using the Comma Separated Value (CSV) Utility in the Utilities Guide.
Hope this helps!Karen
Hi Arthur! Excellent point! We did that when I worked at for the Navy decades ago, after the daily's completed, everybody who wanted it had their records stripped off to their own GDG's. then daily's rolled into weekly's and weekly's rolled into monthly's.
