External Security with RACF

IDMS tasks are internally secured via Resource category names. Those resource categories are then granted to groups.

If you want to secure the IDMS tasks externally, it is not possible to bring the resource category external since there is no entry for CATE in the SRTT.

Are there ideas to bring the resource category name externally?

Currently we brought  the TASK code externally via the SRTT entry TASK. In RACF, we created then groups which have an access list to the tasks.

The problem  is the group name in RACF which has a limitation of 8 characters.

Can we see a resource category as RACF grouping Classes?
