How do I monitor which users are accessing a specific object?
VigilEnt Security Agent for iSeries
I am able to determine when an object was last used, but not who last used it.
There are two possible reports that offer this information (see prerequisite below). From a command line, follow these steps:
PSMENU, and press Enter.
- Option 1Â
PSAudit, and press Enter.
- Option 1
System Auditing and Reporting, and press Enter.
- Option 5
Security Reports Menu, and press Enter.
- Option 3
User and Object Reports Menu, and press Enter.
- Options: 7
Objects Accessed (Changed)Â and/or Option 8
Objects Accessed (Read).
Note:There is a prerequisite. The Object Auditing (
OBJAUD) parameter of the object must specify
*CHANGE(for Option 7) or
*ALL(for Option 8).
- To monitor who is changing it and who is reading it, set the parameter to
*ALL, and run both reports. Once this change is made, the activity will start being logged.
For more detailed information about changes, Data Auditing and Reporting (
DAR) could be used to turn on logging for the specific file and field(s).
