 The Change  Object Authority  command allows  changes to authority  for
 one, generic, or  *ALL objects in a library of  a specific type, or all
 types.   A  list of up  to 50 users  or generic users  may be specified
 for specific authorities or to remove all authorities.

 You must  be authorized  to make changes  to the  authorization of  the
 object or objects.

 A typical command would be:

             CHGOBJAUT  OBJ(xxx/*ALL) OBJTYPE(*ALL)
                          USER(USER1 USER2 USER9*) AUT(*CHANGE)

 All  objects  in  the  library   would  be  processed.    Any  existing
 authorizations  for  USER1  and  USER2  would  be  revoked and  *CHANGE
 authority added for USER1 and  USER2.  Any existing authorizations  for
 any user  with the  generic name  USER9* would  be revoked and  *CHANGE
 authority added.   An optional listing is  produced of the objects that
 were changed.

 You can also remove authorizations such as:

             CHGOBJAUT  OBJ(xxx/*ALL) OBJTYPE(*ALL)
                          USER(USER1 USER2 USER9*) AUT(*REMOVE)

 This would remove any  authorizations for the two  users and any  users
 with the generic  name USER9*.  They  could access the object  based on
 the  rights of  the  *PUBLIC user.    If USER(*ALL)  is  specified, the
 owner and *PUBLIC authority are not removed.

 Excluding users from objects would be done by:

             CHGOBJAUT  OBJ(xxx/*ALL) OBJTYPE(*ALL)
                          USER(USER1 USER2 USER9*) AUT(*EXCLUDE)

 This would prevent the users from any access to the objects.

 CHGOBJAUT escape messages you can monitor for

       TAA9891    CHGOBJAUT failed - see listing

 Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.

 CHGOBJAUT Command parameters                          *CMD

    OBJ           The  qualified name  of the object  to be  changed.  A
                  single  object,  a  generic  name,  or   *ALL  may  be
                  entered  for  all  objects.    The  library  value  is

    OBJTYPE       Either  *ALL  for  all  object  types  or  a  specific
                  object type may  be entered.  Use  the prompter for  a
                  list of the supported object types.

    USER          The user  name to  be changed.   A  list of  up to  50
                  user names or generic names may be entered.

                  *PUBLIC may  be entered as the only  name in the list.

                  *ALL may be entered if AUT(*REMOVE) is specified.

    AUT           The authority to be granted.

                  The  supported  single  values  are  *REMOVE,  CHANGE,
                  *USE, and *EXCLUDE.

                  One  or  more  of  the  specific  authorities  may  be
                  entered  for *OBJALTER,  *OBJEXIST,  *OBJMGT, *OBJOPR,
                  *OBJREF, *ADD, *DLT, *READ, *UPD, and *EXECUTE.

    ATTRIBUTE     The  attribute of the  object(s) to be  changed.  *ALL
                  is the default for all attributes.

                  A specific  attribute may be  entered such  as CLP  or
                  PF.    No  checking  occurs  to ensure  that  a  valid
                  attribute is entered.

    DLTSPLF       A  *YES/*NO parameter for  whether the created spooled
                  file should be deleted.

                  *NO is the default to retain the spooled file.

                  *YES may be  specified to  prevent creating a  spooled
                  file.    If  an  error  occurs,  an  immediate  escape
                  message is sent.


 The combination  of user names from individual  named users and generic
 users cannot exceed 300.   The first 50 will  be changed and an  escape
 message issued.
