Fix Recommendation

Ensure that the following are properly specified in the ACP.

(Note: The resources and/or resource prefixes identified below are examples of a possible installation. The actual resources and/or prefixes are determined when the product is actually installed on a system through the product’s installation guide and can be site specific.)

Use the Compuware Abend-AID Resources and Compuware Abend-AID Resources Descriptions tables in the zOS STIG Addendum. These tables list the resources, access requirements, and logging requirement for Compuware Abend-AID. Ensure the guidelines for the resources and/or generic equivalent specified in the z/OS STIG Addendum are followed.

Note: The Compuware Abend-AID resource class is identified in the Viewer Server’s STC configuration procedure, CWPARM DD statement, member name AAVW00, using the parameter setting EXTERNAL_SECURITY_RESOURCE_CLASS. In addition, there is a parameter that identifies the prefix for all resources, which is EXTERNAL_SECURITY_PREFIX.


The RACF resources as designated in the above table are defined with a default access of NONE.

The RACF resource access authorizations restrict access to the appropriate personnel as designated in the above table.

The RACF resource rules for the resources designated in the above table specify UACC(NONE) and NOWARNING.

The following commands are provided as a sample for implementing resource controls:

RDEFINE resource-class prefix.** UACC(NONE) OWNER(ADMIN) AUDIT(FAILURE(READ))
PERMIT prefix.SERVER.LOGON.FD.** CLASS(res-class) ACCESS(ALTER) ID(appdaudt)
PERMIT prefix.SERVER.LOGON.FD.** CLASS(res-class) ACCESS(ALTER) ID(appsaudt)
PERMIT prefix.SERVER.LOGON.FD.** CLASS(res-class) ACCESS(ALTER) ID(operaudt)
PERMIT prefix.SERVER.LOGON.FD.** CLASS(res-class) ACCESS(ALTER) ID(syspaudt)
