Real-Time Library Security Reports in VSE 24.0

The latest releases of VSE/ESA CONDOR, CYGNET and FALCON are ready and available to our customers. Release 24.0 (VSE/ESA) changes are the result of valuable customer feedback and suggestions. Some of the enhancements include:

  • The OLPS AUDIT command now displays real-time library security reports. These reports can be selected by library, user ID or profile/security level. Full access to the OLPS AUDIT command requires a user profile defined with "CONTROL" access.
  • The system now allows multiple profiles. In Release 18.0, the $$USERS member may be searched multiple times to locate the profile entry to be assigned in the following order:
    1. Searched by Group ID
    2. Searched by the last used profile name if known
    3. Searched on the first available authorized profile entry
    4. Searched on the first non-rejected profile entry
  • FALCON:
    • FLCNUTIL now includes an optional user exit for backup and restore operations. This feature may prove useful for data privacy considerations.
    • The View Batch (VW) and Dump Record (DR) commands may be disabled.
    • FLCNUTIL return codes may now be specified on the OLDSLIST macro.
