TAA Tools


 The Convert Group  Profiles command creates  an outfile of  the members
 of a  group profile.  The  user profile information will  appear in the
 outfile  if the user profile  is specified as the  value for the GRPPRF
 parameter or  is in  the list  supplied for  the SUPGRPPRF  parameters.
 This provides a  simple method of reviewing and  processing the members
 of a group.  The outfile name is GRPPRFP.

 The  model file is  TAASEFLP with a  format of QSYDSUPB.   This file is
 created using  the system  model file  QADSPUPB which  is  used by  the
 system  DSPUSRPRF command  TYPE(*BASIC)  function  when an  outfile  is

 To convert all group profiles, see the CVTALLGRPP command.

 You must have *ALLOBJ special authority to use CVTGRPPRF.

 A typical command would be:

              CVTGRPPRF     GRPPRF(xxx) OUTLIB(yyy)

 There would be one record for each member of the group.

 The  default for  the REFRESH  parameter is *YES  which means  that the
 TAASECKP outfile  in TAASECURE  (part of  the DSPSECRVW  tool) will  be

 If you  are  using CVTGRPPRF  repeatedly on  the same  day, you  should
 consider the *DAYCHG value.

 CVTGRPPRF escape messages you can monitor for

       TAA9891    No user profiles exist for the group

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

 Command parameters                                    *CMD

    GRPPRF        The  group profile to  be used  to select  the members
                  of  the group.   The user profile  will be selected if
                  the  value  matches  that  specified  for  the  GRPPRF
                  parameter  or  one of  the  list  of  profiles in  the
                  SUPGRPPRF parameter.

    OUTLIB        The  library   in  which  the  file  GRPPRFP  will  be
                  placed.  The  default is *LIBL.   If the GRPPRFP  file
                  does not already exist, a library must be named.

    OUTMBR        The  member of  the  GRPPRFP file  to  be  used.   The
                  default is  GRPPRFP.  If the member  does not exist it
                  is added.

    REPLACE       A *YES/*NO  value for  whether  the member  should  be
                  cleared before writing  records into it.   The default
                  is *YES.

                  *NO may  be specified to  add records to  any existing

    REFRESH       An  option  to  determine  if  the  DSPUSRPRF  OUTFILE
                  function is used to  refresh the TAASECKP file in  the
                  TAASECURE library.   The default  is *YES to  mean the
                  TAASECKP file is refreshed.

                  *NO may be specified to use the existing data.

                  *DAYCHG   means  the   TAASECKP   file  will   not  be
                  refreshed if it was last  changed on the current  day.
                  *DAYCHG  assumes  that  if  you  are  using  CVTGRPPRF
                  repeatedly  on the same day,  you do not  want to keep
                  refreshing the information.


 You must have *ALLOBJ special authority.


 The following TAA Tools must be on your system:

      CHKALLOBJ       Check *ALLOBJ special authority
      CHKOBJ3         Check object 3
      DSPSECRVW       Display security review
      EDTVAR          Edit variable
      RTVDAT          Retrieve date
      SNDCOMPMSG      Send completion message
      SNDESCMSG       Send escape message
      SNDSTSMSG       Send status message


 None, the tool is ready to use.
