Prevent viewing dataset with particular first qualifier 3.4

Postby Shanthi_Palani » Thu Mar 29, 2018 6:54 pm

Hello Experts,
I would like to know whether we can in anyway stop viewing datasets with a particular first qualifier in 3.4.
Reason: The organization I am working in didn't want the developers to view production datasets which starts with let's say AAAA.**. Actually I won't be able to browse/view /edit the prod dataset, I don't have access for it. But sometimes accidentally I try to view a prod dataset, and I will get a prompt message that I don't have read access and they get logged and a report is generated saying that I tried an unauthorised access to a dataset.
Can you please help me in this in anyway?

Thank you!

the power of Your organisation should ask the system support group to write the appropriate ISPF exit as per

When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort

This is not something an application programmer can do anything about. It requires system-level access to the security system, and hence MUST be accomplished by the site support group.

It's very easy, do not enter the first qualifier in 3.4!

I think Enrico's answer is appropriate. It is not situation handled by RACF, but an ISPF exit. Though, I disagree that it requires a system programmer. I think any exits can be user written and be put in their own ISPLLIB data set. They just need some assembler experience.
