    Are you planning to migrate to z/OS 2.5?

    Do you know with z/OS 2.5, System Display and Search Facility's (SDSF) internal security can't be used?

    Check out my blog that explains how to enable SDSF external security with ACF2.

    Here is the community blog link:

    We have already migrated to SDSF security with ACF2.

    Question on job cancel / purge. As per Broadcom KB notes allows the ability to cancel their own jobs.

    Note: that granting JES2 OPERCMD access, but no JESSPOOL access still allows the user to cancel or purge jobs that they own. This is a special administrative consideration in order to prevent having to write rules for users to access their own jobs. 

    However, there are instances where the OWNER is different, but, submitted by a user [where job name is their own ID+1 char]. Users want to cancel such jobs. There was an idea to introduce &LID as a rule parameter. Is this idea still in consideration ?
