IDMS Printer Destination

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Jul 25, 2005
Hi all,

I would like to consult the IDMS Gurus on the above-mentioned
subject.

2. Whenever an user logged into IDMS, the print destination will be
defaulted to a specific destination (eg. 'P100').

3. Each time, I have to dynamically dcuf the print destination to my
department printer (eg. 'P200')'.

4. After each session, the earlier print destination (for this case,
'P200') will be gone; 'P100' (defaulted) will take into effect.

5. How could I amend the default print destination permanently?

6. In Security Administration Manual (Chapter 12.0 Syntax for securing
global resources; Subtopic 12.3 ALTER USER PROFILE),
it enlightens that one can alter the user profile to change it
prtdest attributes but in my environment, we did not specify any user
profile.
See the following:
12.3.6 Example
alter user profile corp_dev
attributes
dept='5621',
prtdest='wwuav';


7. Looking forward to hear from all of you soon.

8. That's all folks!

9. Thank you.

Re: IDMS Printer Destination
"One more thing that Gary did not mention is that you can nest profiles
so - for example - you could create a 'base' profile with all settings
except the print destination:

CREATE USER PROFILE APPLPROF
ATTRIBUTE
DICTNAME = 'APPLDICT' OVERRIDE YES ,
DBNAME = 'APPLDB' OVERRIDE YES ,
LOADLIST = 'APPLLOAD' OVERRIDE YES
;

and then create profiles for each destination:

CREATE USER PROFILE APPLPROF_DEST123
ATTRIBUTE
PRTDEST = 'DEST123' OVERRIDE YES ,
INCLUDE = 'APPLPROF' OVERRIDE YES
;

So, assuming all users use one of these profiles, if you have to change
dictionaries for some reason you only have to modify one entity and you
cover all users. This is obviously a simplistic example, but you should
get the idea . . .
