I don't want to have to give a named user or user group the explicit authorization to execute numerous different jobs and workflows.

I want to be able to define a generic system user, with execution privileges on specific jobs and workflows; to be able to specify this generic system user as the User for a job or workflow submitted via a (non-existent) User parameter for ACTIVATE_UC_OBJECT; and to be able to give other users the privilege of being able to execute objects on behalf of the specified generic system user.

1. In Authorizations for a specific User or User Group, add Execute authorization for a generic system user as well as Execute authorization for a specfic Event, for instance.
2. In Authorizations for a generic sytem user, add Execute authorization for numerous jobs and workflows that specific users are otherwise unauthorized to execute.
3. On the Process tab for an Event that the defined User or User Group is authorized to execute, use ACTIVATE_UC_OBJECT with a User parameter to submit a job or workflow as a generic system user.
