Chapter 8. Using existing privilege class
For several reasons, you may not want to use the privilege classes shipped with Web Access.
However, before you decide that you do not, please be aware that starting in Version 7.1 of
Tivoli Information Management for z/OS, the privilege class eligible-user lists are stored in list
processor (LP) format. This enhancement gives you the ability to store hundreds (or even
thousands) of users in one privilege class. The old data-entry panel came with only 24. As
part of the Version 7.1 install, you were asked to consider running TSX BLGTPRIV to migrate
your privilege classes to the list processor format. If you did not do that during the Version 7.1
install, you should do so now.
Assuming that you want to use your current privilege classes, there are steps you must take
so that Web Access will recognize them. You do not have to do anything to get a privilege
class to show up in the Switch Roles list. But, if you do not follow the rest of the steps below,
you will find yourself on the default home page (BLQWUSER.html) when you switch to one of
your privilege classes, which may not be what you want.
The Privilege class role defined in the privilege class record is what Web Access uses to
determine your home page (see Figure 8-1 on page 84). If your privilege class record does
not include a Privilege class role, or there is no lookup record for that role, Web Access
assumes a default page of BLQWUSER.html. This processing is performed by business logic
in the home_page_exit routine, BLQHOME. You can modify this routine or write your own
REXX routine. Refer to 4.3.6, “The home page” on page 40 for more information.
