Our organization has over 100 DBAs that perform database administration duties on the same Db2 for z/OS subsystems. DSM currently allows all users who have access to the same database connections the ability to delete other users tuning jobs, either by accident or on purpose.
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||All DSM users.|
How should it work?
DSM is already controls access to the console and separates users in 2 groups. This access control should be extended to allow users to control who has access to their tuning jobs. Individual tuning jobs could be related to specific sensitive data and the lack of access controls around tuning jobs represents a security defect. Users should be able to choose if individual tuning jobs are hidden from other users or shared (read and/or write) with other users.
|Priority Justification||The potential security issue makes this functionality defect problematic for a full rollout to the database users.|
