What Authorities Does Someone Need to Update Objects Using Access Gen (TSO) Edit Console?

Encyclopedia Administrators restrict access for models based on the authorities they grant to CA Gen users and user groups. In this way environments can be maintained in a controlled manner. The Edit Console uses the exact same CA Gen authorities to dictate whether users can perform update tasks that are requested via the tool. So if a developer does not have update authority in a model, he can't use The Edit Console to change objects or create subsets. Migrate and Publish requests also require the necessary authority to be permitted.

Pre-migrate checks are not subject to security checks as they are a read only process. A pre-migrate check is not related to the CA Gen Trial Migrate facility in any way and performs no migration processing. It executes a set a checks based on the wide-ranging experience we have had for the reasons that migrates fail. For further information please use the Contact link at the top of the page.

Changing the Business System of an Action Block has traditionally been a frustrating task and because of this, is undertaken only if necessary. The Edit Console can perform this task against one or more Action Blocks in a single operation. Because the ramifications of doing so are potentially significant and because The Edit Console makes it so easy, the feature is reserved for use by Encyclopedia Administrators and Model Owners only.
