Defining users

Validation list LOGINOUT is the tool used by the LogInOut approach to define users.
  • Validation list LOGINOUT/LOGINOUT is used to validate access to the sample programs in library LOGINOUT.
    It can be maintained through the URI /loginoutp/wrkvldl.pgm which invokes program LOGINOUT/LOGINOUT.
  • To use loginout approach on a library of yours (example: MYLIB), you must first run command LOGINOUT/SETLIB MYLIB. This command (documented in the next page) populates your library with loginout objects, including validation list LOGINOUT and its maintenance program.
    This new validation list (example: MYLIB/LOGINOUT) is the one to be maintained for validating access to the CGI programs of your library (example: MYLIB), including the sample programs (recreated there by command SETLIB).
    To use the validation list maintenance program you must use a different URI. Example: /mylibp/wrkvldl.pgm .
  • Program WRKVLDL can maintain only validation lists named LOGINOUT, whatever library they are in.
    A more flexible program, able to maintain any validation list, is provided by the WRKVLDL utility.
  • To maintain a validation list you may use - instead of these tools - the IBM iSeries HTTP wizard.
    To start the wizard Use the Operations Navigator, or:
    • http://iSeriesTCPaddress:2001
    • you will be requested to login with a CLASS(*SECADM) user profile

The validation list utility WRKVLDL
After installing library LOGINOUT, to start the validation list maintenance program, use the following URL:
(replace ... with the IP address of your iSeries)
You will be requested to login with an existing user profile / password.
Make sure to logon with a CLASS(*SECADM) user profile.
