It would be great if resources especially db2 resources accepted program pathing.  I have a case now where I want an id to have dbadm and create tab but only if it's scheduled, we don't want people to set their current sql id to it and delete tables.  Source would work as well

We have jobs scheduled thru ca7 that run every day thru automation vs a human logging on and working.  With datasets we can use program pathing  pgm(adrdssu) or source id source(stcrdr) which would allow us to grant access only using a particular source or program currently acf2 does not give that functionality for resources.  As far as I know native db2 does not allow that functionality.

Hi Kevin,

Is this functionality available with native DB2?

ACF/DB2 validates the same resources as provided by native DB2.

Is there a way in DB2 to only allow DBADB if scheduled?

Can you provide more details of what you mean by "scheduled".
