Javier, see if Allen Systems Group can help. They have a product called
Tracer which has been rejuvanated
via SOX audits requirements. They give you one of the IDMS exits to use
and the product itself.
It'll giver you for each update, who the userid is. I think they can
help.

Hi Everybody:
We have a client that have a audit requirenment, they want a report that
contains information about what a user did at database level. The user
idea
its check witch users are using the databases and specifically some
sensitive information. I know that there is some information in the
journals, but I could not find any link betwen the user and the database
information accessed or modified or erased and of course, the
presentation
of the information for a user, not in a complicated way like hex and not
clear. I want to know if somebody in the idms word is using any tool for
audit purposes that helpus with this requerinment.

TIA.

Javier S.

Re: user information and database information for audit purpose
"ISP offer a product called the journal reporter. It provides the same
functionality as Tracer and costs $12,500/year to run, regardless of machine
size. This may be cheaper than Tracer and, of course, there is no charge if
the mainframe is up, or down, graded.


It is available for trial.

Cheers,

Jim.

ode to 14.1 (have i got nothing better to do?)
"as we all know, IDMS 14.1 (MVS) will no longer be supported after
9/30/2005


with this in mind, I have composed (or did i de-compose) a little ditty :
an ode to CA-IDMS 14.1

sung to the tune of ""the theme to Mystery Science Theatre 3000""

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the not too distant future
September 30, 2005
The idms we know as 14.1
Is going to take a dive

It was in February 1999
14.1 started looking mighty fine
It did a great job keeping CVs alive
But now its-a time to be going to release one-five ? (or maybe one-six ..)

We sent it cheesy transactions
The worst we could find (la-la-la)
It handled them all with style and grace
And almost never 1469

Now keep in mind it can?t control
When COBOL MOViES begin or end (la-la-la)
Because it used that special code
To build its helot friends ?.

HELOT ROLL CALL (c?mon, lets go)

ECB 41 (pan left)
178 (hi girls)
204 (what a cool guy)
999 (What a wisecracker)

If you're wondering how IDMS survives,
And other DB facts (la-la-la)
Then repeat to yourself, ""It's the best Database,
I should really just relax"".
For... CA-IDMS 3000 !

Re: user information and database information for audit purpose
"Hi Javier,

We're using Journal Reporter from ISP, to get the information. It uses
an exit to write the user information to the journal for the rununit.
Reports are very easy to produce, and run very fast.
